For more than 25 years since its establishment in 1994, Teleport Access Services (TAS) has developed itself with unparalleled resources and experience in the areas of satellite communication applications and system integration services. Through its world-class teleport on a 107,000 square feet site in Taipei, TAS provides wide-ranging transmission services including MCPC platforms, playout, SNG and 24/7 NOC services.
Since the launch of 5G in July 2020, the National Communications Commission (NCC) of Taiwan has been subsidising telecoms to build 5G base stations and assisting businesses in building private networks using the 5G system. Currently, Taiwan has over 35,000 5G base stations with 5G signals covering 94% of its population. As the services are deployed in 3.5 GHz spectrum (3,340 MHz to 3,520 MHz) and with increased 5G penetration, TAS has received reports and requests from clients to assist them in resolving interference issues caused by nearby 5G base stations.
TAS has selected AsiaSat's BPF-3700S model for extensive testing. During the installation on site, the BPF-3700S model, which is designed with optimised rejection and passband, has proved to be very effective in suppressing 5G interfering signals below 3.6 GHz. Many broadcasters, VSAT service providers, system integrators, teleport operators and also our customers and partners have employed our BPF products to mitigate 5G interference successfully.
TAS: “We thank AsiaSat for their support in resolving the reception issues that we and our clients have encountered due to interference caused by the deployment of 5G base stations nearby our operation and service centres. With the installation of AsiaSat 5G interference rejection bandpass filters, we are able to maintain high-quality and reliable services to our customers, whether for satellite TV reception, linear TV distribution or SNG contribution service locally and abroad.”
