Intelsat, our satellite-service provider, has issued specifications for filters that PRSS interconnected stations will have to install on their satellite downlinks to guard against potential 5G wireless interference.
The specifications are available for downloading here.
In order to prevent service disruptions, stations are advised not to install these filters until after the transition to the new ATX interconnection system is completed and the IDC system is retired in February 2021.
If you have any questions about the filters, please contact Intelsat at CBandinfo@intelsat.com.
