The presented project concerns the development of the third release of the Space Gate product of Thales Alenia Space (Space Gate R3).
Space Gate is a satellite access network solution based on DVB standards. Whereas the current version (R2) is deployed in professional and military networks, the market targeted by the new release (R3) is the High Throughput Satellite (HTS) market.
The main technical goals that drive the evolution of Space Gate product are:
The optimization of services performances and quality of experience.
The benefits of the Space Gate solution in HTS systems rely on:
A full interoperability by complying existing telecom standard (DVB S2-RCS2, MEF…).
The SpaceGate solution is a satellite network solution that suits with HTS sizing: several hundreds of Gbps and several hundred thousand end-users distributed on a decade of gateways.
The solution is based on main components:
Ku & Ka band terminals with consumer modem (T-110) or professional modem (T-210)
System PDR, scheduled second half of September 2015, has been successful.
