With the onset of 5G, there is a need for specialized products to block or prevent interference from 5G base stations in proximity of C-band ground terminals. Traditionally, C-band is used for satellite services, radar, and microwave links. However, with the terrestrial wireless industry’s planned introduction of new mobile phones networks such as LTE, Wi-Max, and 5G, these C-band frequencies will now be shared amongst a wider range of services. The interference signals are powerful enough to saturate the sensitive C-band satellite receiving systems, causing a potential for total loss of service.
