Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB); Interaction channel for satellite distribution systems
|Publication Date:||1 January 2009|
The present document forms the specification for the provision of the interaction channel for GEO satellite interactive networks with fixed Return Channel Satellite Terminals (RCST). The present document facilitates the use of RCSTs for individual or collective installation (e.g. SMATV) in a domestic environment. It also supports the connection of such terminals with in-house data networks. The present document may be applied to all frequency bands allocated to GEO satellite services.
The solutions provided for interaction channel for satellite interactive networks are a part of a wide set of alternatives to implement interactive services through Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) systems.
The revision accomplished in 2002 provides the means to extend the applicability of the standard to regenerative satellite systems. This revision also allows for reduction in terminal costs without significantly impacting the performance.
The revision accomplished in 2004 integrates the DVB-S2 standard for forward link transmission. DVB-S2 is the second generation standard for satellite transmission, which provides higher power and bandwidth efficiency as well as adaptive coding and modulation.
The revision accomplished in 2008 provides the means for comprehensive support of mobile and nomadic terminals, including techniques to overcome the transmission channel impairments experienced by mobile terminals and the necessary mechanisms to control and mange mobile terminals.
