Satellite Network Modem System (SNMS) General Requirements
|Publication Date:||1 October 2005|
TIA-1073 is a multi-part standard that when taken in total,
defines the requirements for a Satellite Network Modem System using
Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) and Multi-Frequency Time Division
Multiple Access (MF-TDMA) signaling. The Satellite Network Modem
System (SNMS) standard defines the technical requirements for
meeting the functional capabilities described in TIA/EIA-157 .
This SNMS standard defines the requirements for Hub-Spoke as well
as Mesh satellite network topologies operating over
As stated previously, TIA-1073 is a multi-part standard. The collection of parts making up this revision of TIA-1073 is depicted below in Figure 1.
The present document, SNMS General Requirements (TIA-1073.000),
provides the general requirements necessary to achieve SNMS
interoperability for hub-spoke and mesh network topologies. The
general requirements that shall be met by the SNMS reference
publications that were developed by European Telecommunications
Standards Institute ETSI for Digital Video Broadcast (DVB). These
referenced publications are freely available at
Enhanced upper level networking interoperability requirements and encryption requirements are under development as other parts of this standard. The upper level networking requirements for SNMS are under development and will be provided by the SNMS Network Layer Protocols (TIA-1073.001). The enhanced encryption requirements for SNMS are under development and will be provided by the SNMS Encryption Requirements (TIA-1073.002).
