Solaris Mobile strengthens management team with the appointment of Daniela Genta as Director of Regulatory Affairs

[ClickPress, Thu Nov 13 2008] Dublin-based Solaris Mobile has announced the appointment of Daniela Genta as Director of Regulatory Affairs. With more than ten years experience in the satellite, telecommunications and space industry, Daniela will significantly strengthen the management team at Solaris Mobile as the company prepares to launch next generation mobile TV services via satellite.

Her first task will be to lead the Public Affairs team to prepare for the launch of the Solaris Mobile satellite in the first quarter of 2009. She will play a key role in supporting the comprehensive application that the company submitted to the European Commission last month for the rollout of the S-Band spectrum mobile satellite services throughout Europe.

Solaris Mobile will be the first and the only candidate operator to have a fully operational state of the art hybrid satellite and terrestrial system that can be offered throughout Europe in 2009. Daniela will also be in charge of securing all the necessary authorisations for the network in each country of the Union.

Her experience in the satellite, telecommunications and space industry includes two years as Director for Institutional Business Development at Thales Alenia Space in Toulouse, where the Solaris Mobile Satellite is being built. Previously, she worked for the Paris-based satellite operator, Eutelsat, originally in International Frequency Management and later in Strategic Planning.

Daniela holds an Honours Degree in International Law and Politics from the Università degli Studi di Pisa, a Post-Graduate Degree in International Trade Law from the University Institute of European Studies in Torino, and a Master of Science from the International Space University (ISU) in Strasbourg.

Steve Maine, Solaris Mobile CEO, said of the new appointment: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Daniela to the team here at Solaris Mobile. She joins us at an important stage in the company’s development, as we countdown towards the launch of our satellite in 2009, putting Solaris Mobile in the unique position of being able to offer mobile satellite services to consumers across Europe. Daniela’s experience at European level will help us to make this happen.”



Solaris Mobile, a Eutelsat and SES Astra joint venture, was established earlier this year to develop next generation mobile TV services via satellite. Its corporate headquarters in Dublin officially opened in June 2008. The company plans to provide TV, video and radio plus two-way communication to a variety of handheld and vehicle-mounted mobile devices. Solaris Mobile’s range of services, scheduled for launch in early 2009, is aimed primarily at Broadcasters, Telco operators, the Automotive industry, and Data & Communication providers.

The company intends to operate in a 2.00 GHz frequency band, the S-band, reserved for the exclusive use of satellite and terrestrial mobile services. The S-band sits alongside UMTS frequencies that are already used across Europe for 3G terrestrial services.
