In order to ensure that Satellite Interactive Terminals (RCSTs) meet both regulatory and proprietary acceptance requirements, each new type of RCST is required to undergo conformance tests. Satellite operators' acceptance tests, based on the ETSI DVB-RCS Standard plus the specific requirements of each satellite network operator, are dealing with the interworking between terminal and network with a view to the interoperability in different satellite interactive systems.
The objective of this project is a critical and thorough analysis and a clear identification for each of three specified HUB manufacturers with view to interoperability. This analysis will deal with:
The objective of all this activity is to set up a Common Test House for DVB-RCST compliance and interoperability testing.
Based on the conclusions taken in the study the realisation of a Test Bed for DVB RCST has been pushed by SatLabs and ESA as well.
Main benefits are:
A System Architecure is not applicable to this project.
The Project was performed in three steps with following tasks:
Preparation of an outline CTP (core and options for the different systems) taking into account the findings and conclusions of the previous tasks and based on dis-tributed CTB based on the existing HUBs.
The project was finished in the third quarter of 2002.
