For several years now, broadcasters and satellite industry leaders have been collaborating to combat satellite interference throughout the world. What results have been achieved? What challenges remain to be addressed? And what is required to address those outstanding challenges? This Summit will provide answers.

Participating in this high-level dialogue will be executives covering the full spectrum of our industry: Representing key satellite industry associations will be GVF (the Global VSAT Forum), sIRG (the satellite Interference Reduction Group) and their members. Serving as the voice of the broadcasting sector will be WBU-ISOG (the World Broadcasting Unions – International Satellite Operations Group) and a relatively new group, the RFI – EUI (Radio Frequency Interference – End Users Initiative). Now established are three working groups with representation from all the above mentioned organizations. The goals of each group will develop plans designed to take quality assurance and satellite signal integrity to the next level.

Those plans are critical because continuing interference is still causing service interruptions. This results in increased operational costs and decreased reliability rates, as well as impacting industry competitiveness.

Broadcasters' and satellite industry efforts to solve RFI problems have been extensive, but the adoption of viable solutions and their comprehensive implementation have yet to be achieved and there is heightened urgency for results.

This one-day forum will include leading satellite operators, manufacturers, customers and other end users as well as other subject experts in open discussions and debate. Participants will have an opportunity to learn about the latest developments relating to each facet of this issue, evaluate their relative merits, and build upon the progress already made towards necessary solutions.

There is no charge for attendance, but seating will be limited. To ensure a place for your organization at this important forum, please RSVP today at the RFI-EUI website (
