NSR’s U.S. C-Band Repurposing for 5G: Impacts and Analysis report is the most comprehensive and complete analysis for the U.S. C-Band Spectrum repurposing process. Building on over 19 years of regular NSR reporting and in-depth data gathering and forecasting for U.S. C-Band markets, the report assesses all the key elements behind the spectrum reallocation process:
While repurposing of mid-band spectrum has created uncertainty for the satellite Industry in the U.S. and elsewhere, this reports provides clarity on the most probable outcomes for this process in North America and the risk for contagion globally. It is a “must have” report for anyone seeking bottom line data and analysis on the urgent need to repurpose C-Band spectrum, the most probable future line of events and the impact on the satellite industry.
The core of NSR’s detailed assessment is rooted in bottom-up methodology followed to assess the different elements influencing the process (supply, demand, market share, repurposing plan, costs of repurposing, spectrum value). NSR delivers the widest and most detailed coverage of the repurposing process, leveraging its historical database (longest-running forecast for C-Band supply and demand over the U.S.), the extensive library of reports covering in detail each relevant segment (Video, Mobility, Enterprise Data, Ground Segment, Satellite Manufacturing and Launch, etc.) and the deep understanding of the relevant market dynamics.
NSR’s U.S. C-Band Repurposing for 5G: Impacts and Analysis is based on long standing methodologies that have been validated and improved over the years on NSRs’ extensive library of reports. NSR rigorously tracks the public announcements of all major players across the value chain and has carried extensive interviews to build base year data and carefully formulate forecast data.
Every active satellite with C-Band supply over CONU.S. and future orders are tracked to generate an accurate supply assessment. Demand is built up from NSR’s extensive coverage on vertical-specific reports. NSR’s GSCSD16, VBSM17, WBS13, MSM7, ASM7, GMSC15 reports are used to generate the demand forecast for each specific vertical. Market Share analysis is based on the assessment of channels broadcasted per satellite operator, fill rate per satellite and tracking key deals in the region for each satellite operator.
NSR applies its knowledge on supply-demand dynamics to assess the potential for further spectrum reassignments following network optimization (adoption of enhanced compression and transmission standards) and migration to other bands. Based on NSR’s understanding of Ground Segment and Space Segment dynamics and leveraging NSR’S CSGS3 and SMLS9 reports, a bottom-up analysis of repurposing costs is presented. Spectrum valuation and analysis of share of proceeds to the satellite operators currently leasing out the C-band capacity in CONU.S., is presented, building upon the financial practice area at the firm.
