[Via Satellite 03-31-2015] Arabsat has signed a contract with Siemens Convergence Creators to provide a new Communication System Monitoring (CSM) for the Dirab Earth station. The system includes SIECAMS, which bolsters the operator’s satellite monitoring and interference detection capabilities.

Siemens Convergence Creators’ CSM will monitor all the traffic from Arabsat’s satellite fleet, providing continuous awareness of RF and Quality of Service (QoS) measurements, the characterization, decoding and analysis of all carriers within the payload. The earth station upgrade is expected to lead to greater collaboration between Arabsat and Siemens Convergence Creators in addressing satellite interference. Both companies are members of the Satellite Interference Reduction Group (sIRG), and assisted in the global implementation of Carrier-ID.
