HONG KONG: Shin Satellite and Asia Satellite Telecommunications (Asiasat) have announced that the administrations of China and Thailand have concluded a frequency coordination agreement between both countries.



The agreement settled all concerned ITU filings of both sides at 120E and 122E for Thailand and China respectively.



Shin Satellite CEO Dr. Dumrong Kasemset was quoted in an official release saying, " We have to thank the governments of both China and Thailand for their continual support, leading to a reasonable and equitable resolution. We believe that with this agreement the customers using satellites located at the two slots will be protected from interference. This is also a good example of how Asian regional satellite operators can cooperate for the benefit of all."



Asiasat CEO Peter Jackson added, " This agreement demonstrates that the normal ITU processes work exceptionally well in cases where potential harmful interference could occur between satellites. The agreement between AsiaSat and Shin Satellite fully protects Asiasat's clients in China and Australia from the signals at Ku band generated by iPSTAR.



"Asiasat's Ku band clients will be able to use 60 cm antennas for receiving only DTH type applications and 80 cm antennas for two way communications applications. Protection criteria for C band applications were also agreed. This will ensure that clients of both companies do not suffer from adjacent network interference."



Turnkey satellite operator Shin Satellite provides a C-band and Ku-band transponder leasing, teleport and other value-added and engineering services to users in Asia, Africa, Europe and Australasia. Shin Satellite owns and operates Thaicom 1A, 2, and 3. Thaicom 1A is located at 120E, and Thaicom 2 and 3 are both located at 78.5E with a total capacity of 49 C-band and 20 Ku-band transponders offering over 70 channels. Thaicom is a hotbird for Indochina and India, an emerging platform of choice for transcontinental Sat TV broadcasts from Europe to Australia.



Asiasat claims to be the leading regional satellite operator in Asia. It serves over two-thirds of the world's population with its satellites. The Asiasat satellite system provides services to both the broadcast and telecommunications industries. Over 120 analogue and digital television channels and 90 radio channels are now delivered by the Company's satellites, reaching over 80 million households, with more than 300 million viewers across the Asia Pacific region. The release adds that many telecommunications customers use Asiasat for services such as public telephone networks, private VSAT networks and high speed Internet and multimedia services.
