Fixed satellite services or FSS is a communication service that uses radio frequencies (RF) in order to communicate between several stations that are used for television signals (for broadcasting) and telephone calls. It conveys valuable data to security services and national intelligence in order to fight terrorism & crime. It operates in the C-band, Ku-band, X-band, and Ka-band that offers them better connectivity & data transfer speed. It serves its users with a secure or fixed prescribed spectrum and also produces backup for fiber-optic cables, which makes the satellite communication an exclusive choice for multi-point communication. It is extensively used by military organizations, governments, as well as small & large business firms across the globe.
