Expanding Satellite Communication in Taiwan

The growth of satellite communication services in Taiwan is a significant step toward the creation of a robust and reliable digital infrastructure, the promotion of economic growth, and the improvement of the quality of life for businesses and individuals across the entire nation.

The results of the first wave of open telecom operators to apply for commercial satellite communication frequencies have been announced by the Ministry of Digital Affairs (moda) of Taiwan. This announcement was made possible by the result of a tremendous process.

Two operators have been approved, including one that built its own satellite platform with global coverage and aims to use the Eutelsat synchronous orbital satellite to connect fishing boats and merchant ships with high-speed Internet. The other operator wants to use the O3b medium orbit satellite. Ships, planes, and fixed sites on land are among its target markets.

The “Radio Frequency Review Committee for Satellite Fixed Communications” was set up with the help of the National Communications Commission (NCC). Experts and scholars in the areas of communications, finance, and information security were asked to join.

They asked for help from the Financial Supervisory Commission and the Investment Review Committee of the Ministry of Economic Affairs to finish the review of the two companies’ application qualifications, network setup, and operation ideas.

The next operators must pay a performance bond and send a letter of approval for frequency use from the moda. They must also ask the NCC to approve their operation plans and plans for setting up their networks.

Every year, operators can submit applications for commercial satellite communication frequencies in March and September. It is expected that more operators will file applications. The goal of this move is to give people in their own country a wider range of business, pleasure, and emergency services, as well as to improve signal coverage in hard-to-reach places like mountains, the sea, and islands.

By doing this, the Taiwanese government hopes to improve public network backup and make Taiwan’s information network more digitally resilient.

The growth of satellite communication services in Taiwan will be good for both companies and consumers because it will make it possible to connect people in places where traditional communication methods are not available. It is a big step toward building a strong and reliable digital infrastructure, which is very important in the world we live in now.

Satellite communication services can provide connectivity in areas where conventional means of communication are unavailable, such as remote or mountainous regions, the ocean, and islands in the midst of the ocean. This can facilitate communication for individuals, enterprises, and emergency services in these areas.

Additionally, satellite communication services can strengthen Taiwan’s communication network’s resilience. By expanding signal coverage through satellite services, the government can establish a backup network if power outages or natural disasters disrupt conventional communication channels.

Also, satellite communication services can facilitate the expansion of numerous industries, such as the shipping, aviation, and tourism sectors. To operate effectively and efficiently, these industries frequently require dependable communication services. It can also encourage the creation of new commercial, entertainment, and emergency services applications. This may result in increased innovation and economic expansion in Taiwan’s technology sector.
