Azerbaijan in talks to coordinate frequency assignments for satellite systems with three countries
Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept.27 / Trend H.Veliyev /
The Azerbaijani Communications and IT Ministry has launched talks for the coordination of frequency assignments for satellite systems with South Korea, Belgium and Vietnam, Chief Adviser of the Ministry's Telecommunication Department, Gulam Abdullayev, has told Trend.
Abdullayev said the negotiations with these countries are being carried out through e-correspondence.
The main objective is to achieve progress in the coordination of satellite networks in these countries and the coordination of the use of frequency resources and the broadcasting zone.
At present, the coordination of frequency assignments for satellite systems agreed with Kazakhstan and Ukraine. Coordination issues are also planned to be discussed with Russia, Turkey, Monaco and Italy.
The ITU placed the Azerspace national satellite on 43.2, 58.5 and 96 degrees east.
ITU presented list of countries, whose satellites will also be located at the above mentioned positions to the Ministry of Communications of Azerbaijan. Initially, the satellite will be located at orbital position 46 degrees east longitude, leased from the Malaysia.
The Azerbaijani Communications Ministry reported earlier that the priority is to coordinate issues on the positions of 43.2 and 58.5 degrees east longitude. The main purpose of coordination is to avoid the problems in the future, Abdullayev said earlier.
The ITU participating countries agreed on two principles of allocation orbital frequency resources - distributed and coordinated.
The distribution system gives some limited amount of resources to specific services. An example of distribution solutions may serve as ITU's global plan for broadcast services, on which all states received a long-term orbital-frequency resource in a geostationary orbit for the deployment of networks of national systems for television broadcasting. But the majority of satellite communications systems (CAS) are resources on coordination basis.
The country that plans to establish a satellite system that agrees with all owners of neighboring satellite communication systems, whose interests are affected.
The only legitimate basis for the consolidation of international law to occupy an orbital position is to launch a satellite after the international coordination of the parameters of satellite communications systems with systems of other countries and its notification in the International telecommunication Union (ITU) register. If the satellite has not been launched in time then the unrealized orbital-frequency resource is canceled by ITU and enters into a common pool of resources for coordination for other satellite systems asserted in this position.
