Dear Mr. Rich:
On April 9, 2012, IP Access International (IP Access) filed the above-captioned application for a
new license to operate a fixed-satellite service VSAT network earth station. The proposed earth
station will use 1.2 meter, 0.96 meter, and 1.8 meter antennas as remotes and will operate in the
conventional Ku-band frequencies.1 IP Access proposes to use an existing VSAT hub2 to control
its VSAT network. Pursuant to Section 25.112(a) of the Commission’s rules3, we dismiss the
application as defective without prejudice to refiling. 4
Section 25.112(a) of the Commission’s rules 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.5 IP Access’
application contains internal inconsistencies which renders it defective and subject to dismissal.
In response to item E48 of FCC Form 312 Schedule B (Schedule B), which relates to IP Access’
proposed 1.2 meter antenna, the application lists the maximum EIRP per carrier for emission
1M82G7W as 52.8 dBW. This proposed carrier power level is greater than and therefore
inconsistent with the Total EIRP for All Carriers of 51.0 dBW.6 Given this inconsistency, we
cannot accurately determine the emission power for the proposed antenna.
The conventional Ku-band encompasses the 11.7-12.2 GHz downlink frequencies and 14.0-14.5 GHz
Intelsat’s existing hub control station under Call Sign E00074.
47 C.F.R. § 25.112(a).
If IP Access International refiles an application identical to the one dismissed, with the exception of
supplying the corrected information, it need not pay an application fee. See
47 C.F.R. § 1.1111(d).

Item E40 Schedule B.
Federal Communications Commission DA 12-1547
Likewise, in response to item E48 of Schedule B, which describes the proposed 0.96 meter
antenna, the application lists the maximum EIRP per carrier for emission 1M82G7W as 52.8
dBW. This proposed carrier power level is greater than and therefore inconsistent with, the Total
EIRP for All Carriers of 49.0 dBW.7 Again, this inconsistency makes it impossible to accurately
determine the emission power for proposed antenna.
Accordingly, pursuant to Section 25.112(a) of the Commission’s rules8 and Section 0.261 of the
Commission’s rules on delegations of authority,9 we dismiss the application of IP Access
