For more than 35 years...
When it’s time to build or upgrade your satellite network facility, trust USSI Global to deliver a comprehensive, customized solution tailored to your needs and budget. We do it all – site surveys, FCC license preparation, system design with drawings and documentation, and, of course, all the RF systems, mechanical, and infrastructure engineering. Our services also include IP video infrastructure integration, virtualized media solutions, and channel playout and distribution.
C-Band Interference Mitigation
Satellite operators are facing an accelerated timeline to clear the lower 300 MHz of the C-band for 5G services. With some deadlines as early as December 2021, these new FCC rules will have a major impact on broadcast and cable networks. From national networks to station groups and even independent stations, USSI Global can simplify your transition by building new encoder systems, installing new antennas, installing filters, and upgrading your existing facilities.
Ground Station Services
Whether you manage a single decoder at a cable headend or a broadcast network hub serving dozens of channels, USSI Global is your point-to-multipoint solutions provider. We own and operate more than 50 sites that offer satellite content hosting and monitoring services. Deployed across North and South America and Europe, each of our ground stations is equipped to collect your data streams for instant global distribution via Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites. Our ground station services also offer interference testing.
Downtime means lost dollars. With a service level agreement (SLA) from USSI Global, you have a guaranteed response time to minimize disruption. Our scalable solutions support single stations, station groups, or larger networks. While our 24/7/365 Network Operations Center (NOC) can diagnose and resolve many issues remotely, our technician teams and other resources are strategically placed around the world for rapid in-person response.
Got a problem? USSI Global may know it before you do. Our proactive monitoring can anticipate problems before they affect your content distribution, and can automatically open a service call in our system. We manage equipment inventories for more than 15,000 cable headends, as well as major broadcast networks, and our custom software makes it easier to recognize equipment trends and analysis. In fact, our comprehensive database tracks the life cycle of every part. Trust our state-of-the-art repair facility in Melbourne, FL, for warranty-level repair agreements with hassle-free shipment tracking.
One of the largest TV broadcasters in the United States required a partner to modernize its satellite network for a changing operational environment related to the FCC’s C-Band spectrum transition. In addition to navigating this national broadcaster through complex spectrum reallocations within the C-Band’s 500 MHz bandwidth frequency, a full-service expert was needed to inspect, upgrade and maintain its satellite facilities – all over a three-year period.
