Dear Mr. Botwin:
On April 28, 2014, Orange Business Services U.S. Inc. (Orange) filed the above-
captioned application for a VSAT network in the 14.0-14.5 GHz (Earth-to-space) and 11.7-12.2
GHz (space-to-Earth) frequency bands that consists of one fixed earth station in Clearwater, FL,
and 100 remote earth stations operating within the continental United States, which proposes to
communicate with the Galaxy 16 satellite at the 99° W.L. orbital location and with “ALSAT”
points of communication. Pursuant to Section 25.112(a)(2) of the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R.
§ 25.112(a)(2), we dismiss the application, without prejudice to refiling.1
Section 25.112(a) of the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R. § 25.112, requires the
Commission to return, as unacceptable for filing, any earth station application that is not
substantially complete, contains internal inconsistencies, or does not substantially comply with
the Commission’s rules. For the reasons stated below, Orange’s application is unacceptable and
subject to dismissal.
Orange lists in item E40 of the FCC Form 312 - Schedule B, for both the fixed earth
station and the remote terminals, 62.5 dBW as the total equivalent isotropically radiated
power (eirp) for all carriers; however, based on Orange’s responses of 40 Watts to item
E38 and of 45.9 dBi to the antenna transmit gain in item E42, the maximum Total Output
for all Carriers should be 61.9 dBW. Furthermore, Orange states in item E48, that the
maximum eirp per carrier for emission designator 36M0G7W is 68.9 dBW, which
exceeds our calculated maximum power level.
Orange indicates in item E17 of the FCC Form 312 - Schedule B that the 100 remote
terminals would be operated remotely, but neither identifies the remote control point
within the United States, nor states that it would maintain a point of contact within the
United States available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with the ability to shut off any
earth station within the VSAT network immediately upon notification of harmful
If Orange refiles an application identical to the one dismissed, with the exception of supplying the
missing information, it need not pay an application fee. See 47 C.F.R. § 1.1111(d).

interference, as required by Section 25.271(c)(5)of the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R
Orange states in item E56 of the FCC Form 312 - Schedule B that the earth station’s
azimuth angle western limit is 254.0 degrees; however, the FCC’s calculated azimuth
angle western limit shows 258.5 degrees.
Orange states in item E57 of the FCC Form 312 - Schedule B that the western limit of the
earth station’s elevation angle is 15.3 degrees, and that the eastern limit is 26.1 degrees;
however, the FCC’s calculated elevation angle western limit shows 12.8 degrees and
eastern limit shows 31.9 degrees.
Accordingly, pursuant to Section 0.261 of the Commission’s rules on delegated authority, 47
C.F.R. § 0.261, we dismiss the application of Orange Business Services U.S. Inc. without
prejudice to refiling.
