Satellite Geolocation Service

Worldwide satellite interference localization – powered by SIECAMS®

For satellite operators, the ability to rapidly identify and mitigate interference – intentional or not – is crucial to protect the core functionality of their most valuable assets and ensure flawless satellite service operations.

When satellite interference occurs, it can be devastating to end-users, whether in homes, businesses, or governments, as it undermines the integrity of satellite communication and compromises the most important feature of communication satellites: secure and reliable communication that is independent of the constraints of ground-based data-highways.

With the increase in satellite communication around the world, satellite operators and service providers are more and more challenged by interference problems on their satellites. Interference that impairs signal quality and availability is a direct threat to their business models and revenue – and may even result in penalties. Siemens Convergence Creators engineers have created the Satellite Geolocation Service to help operators provide the service quality guaranteed to their customers, aiding them in fulfilling their service level agreements.

The new service enables operators to localize inferences with no upfront investment or operating costs.

New offering: a superior service for interference localization *
Nearly 100% worldwide coverage – the Satellite Geolocation Serviceeclipses competitors who only reach 60-70% coverage. Success rates above 60% –  traditional systems typically do notexceed success rates of 30-40%. Support of the Ka-band – makes Siemens Convergence Creators’ Satellite Geolocation Service stand out even further from its competition.

Continuous development resulting in an unprecedented toolset

As one of the global market leaders for satellite interference localization solutions, Siemens Convergence Creators has made significant investments into developing uniquely potent tools for satellite interference mitigation in the last decade. As a result, SIECAMS® by Siemens Convergence Creators is the most complete and effective toolbox for satellite operators facing interference today. 

SIECAMS® currently consists of:

  • The powerful carrier-monitoring and interference-detection tool SIECAMS® CMS
  • The carrier-ID detection tool SIECAMS® CID
  • The classic geolocation system SIECAMS® ILS
  • The world’s first real working single-satellite geolocation system SIECAMS® ILS ONE

Siemens Convergence Creators' Satellite Geolocation Service reaches unprecedented coverage and success rates in identifying satellite interference sources

Until today, satellite operators had to invest in high-quality geolocation tools and personnel training to enable their own staff to identify, locate and reduce or eliminate sources of interference in order to avoid potential damage claims and the risk of losing customers. Even so, locating the origin of an interference may take days, weeks or even months. However, the chance of success increases dramatically with the availability of the latest tools and correspondingly trained staff.

The entire SIECAMS® toolbox at operators' fingertips

With Siemens Convergence Creators’ new Satellite Geolocation Service, operators now have the entire SIECAMS® toolbox for interference localization, combined with highly skilled and trained personnel at their disposal. Because the service is provided and operated by Siemens Convergence Creators, all the benefits are available without the need for upfront investment in infrastructure and staff. Customers confronted with interference just need to provide very basic information about the affected satellite and transponders to initiate the Satellite Geolocation Service.

Satellite Geolocation Service: Benefits for operators | No upfront investment and no running costs for necessary infrastructure and personnel | Worldwide coverage: Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia-Pacific, North and South America | Very high hit rate thanks to the world’s first single-satellite geolocation system (SIECAMS® ILS ONE) |  Specifically designed to support requirements from different types of customers: Satellite and service operators,regulators, military and government entities

The Satellite Geolocation Service can be ordered on demand for individual interference events, or via yearly subscription including a contingent of interference localization instances.
