Lecture 12

  1. 1. Broadcast Systems <ul><li>Unidirectional distribution systems </li></ul><ul><li>DAB </li></ul><ul><ul><li>architecture </li></ul></ul><ul><li>DVB </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Container </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>High-speed Internet </li></ul></ul>
  2. 2. Typical Client Server Application Client IBM Server Sends a data request Server sends a huge volume of data
  3. 3. Unidirectional distribution systems <ul><li>Asymmetric communication environments </li></ul><ul><ul><li>bandwidth limitations of the transmission medium </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>depends on applications, type of information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>examples </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>wireless networks with base station and mobile terminals </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>client-server environments (diskless terminal) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>cable TV with set-top box </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>information services (pager, SMS) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Special case: unidirectional distribution systems </li></ul><ul><ul><li>high bandwidth from server to client (downstream), but no bandwidth vice versa (upstream) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>problems of unidirectional broadcast systems </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a sender can optimize transmitted information only for one group of users/terminals </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>functions needed to individualize personal requirements/applications </li></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Typical Personalized Services – Broadcast Services <ul><li>A user might need a filter as a personal requirement. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Starting time of news </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Disable all rated movie channels </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Disable all movie channels after 10.00pm </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>As for the broadcast system goes, the broadcast takes place irrespective of the target user. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>MAIN ISSUE : Sender still has the control on when to send and what to send. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>HOW TO CIRCUMVENT THIS? </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Cyclic Repetition <ul><li>In normal radio kind of broadcast, the receiver gets the packets if it tunes to the channel. Else, it will not. </li></ul><ul><li>But in specific situations where the sender has to listen to the program (for ex., emergency weather announcement), data pattern has to be repeated. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Unidirectional distribution service provider service user sender receiver receiver receiver . . . unidirectional distribution medium A A A A A A A B B B B optimized for expected access pattern of all users individual access pattern of one user 
  7. 7. Structuring transmissions - broadcast disks <ul><li>Sender </li></ul><ul><ul><li>cyclic repetition of data blocks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>different patterns possible (optimization possible only if the content is known) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Receiver </li></ul><ul><ul><li>use of caching </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>cost-based strategy: what are the costs for a user (waiting time) if a data block has been requested but is currently not cached </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>application and cache have to know content of data blocks and access patterns of user to optimize </li></ul></ul></ul>A B C A B C flat disk A A B C A A skewed disk A B A C A B multi-disk
  8. 8. Broadcast Patterns <ul><li>Flat Disk : </li></ul><ul><li>All blocks are repeated at equal intervals </li></ul><ul><li>Average waiting time to receive the data is the same. </li></ul><ul><li>Skewed Disk : </li></ul><ul><li>Some important blocks are repeated several times in a sequence </li></ul><ul><li>Will ensure that even if some blocks are corrupted, users will not miss the data </li></ul><ul><li>Multi-Disk : </li></ul><ul><li>Distribute evenly so that blocks occur at higher frequency </li></ul><ul><li>Pattern should occur cyclically. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Broadcast Patterns <ul><li>The sender can optimize the broadcast patterns and design the sequence based on the type of programs. </li></ul><ul><li>If an user has a prior knowledge of the access patterns, his waiting time is drastically reduced. </li></ul>
  10. 11. Digital Audio Broadcasting <ul><li>Why has this come up? </li></ul><ul><li>higher fidelity </li></ul><ul><li>more stations and more resistance to noise </li></ul><ul><li>co-channel interference and multipath </li></ul><ul><li>stronger error correction coding </li></ul><ul><li>*** If the bit rates used are less, the performance can be worse than FM </li></ul>
  11. 12. Digital Audio Broadcasting <ul><li>A DVB receiver must support the following modes </li></ul><ul><li>Mode I for Band III, Earth </li></ul><ul><li>Mode II for L-Band, Earth and satellite </li></ul><ul><li>Mode III for frequencies below 3 GHz, Earth and satellite </li></ul><ul><li>Mode IV for L-Band, Earth and satellite </li></ul>

  22. 23. Audio Coding <ul><li>Goal </li></ul><ul><ul><li>audio transmission almost with CD quality </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>robust against multipath propagation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>minimal distortion of audio signals during signal fading </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Mechanisms </li></ul><ul><ul><li>fully digital audio signals (PCM, 16 Bit, 48 kHz, stereo) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>MPEG compression of audio signals, compression ratio 1:10 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>redundancy bits for error detection and correction </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>burst errors typical for radio transmissions, therefore signal interleaving - receivers can now correct single bit errors resulting from interference </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>low symbol-rate, many symbols </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>transmission of digital data using long symbol sequences, separated by guard spaces </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>delayed symbols, e.g., reflection, still remain within the guard space </li></ul></ul></ul>
  23. 24. Bit Rate Management <ul><li>a DAB ensemble combines audio programs and data services with different requirements for transmission quality and bit rates </li></ul><ul><li>the standard allows dynamic reconfiguration of the DAB multiplexing scheme (i.e., during transmission) </li></ul><ul><li>data rates can be variable, DAB can use free capacities for other services </li></ul><ul><li>the multiplexer performs this kind of bit rate management, therefore, additional services can come from different providers </li></ul><ul><li>maximum bit rate per multiplex of 1152 kbit/s. </li></ul>
  24. 25. Example of a reconfiguration D1 D2 D3 D4 D5 D6 D7 D8 D9 Audio 1 192 kbit/s PAD Audio 2 192 kbit/s PAD Audio 3 192 kbit/s PAD Audio 4 160 kbit/s PAD Audio 5 160 kbit/s PAD Audio 6 128 kbit/s PAD DAB - Multiplex D1 D2 D3 D4 D5 D6 D7 D8 D9 Audio 1 192 kbit/s PAD Audio 2 192 kbit/s PAD Audio 3 128 kbit/s PAD Audio 4 160 kbit/s PAD Audio 5 160 kbit/s PAD Audio 7 96 kbit/s PAD DAB - Multiplex - reconfigured Audio 8 96 kbit/s PAD D10 D11
  25. 26. Dynamic Reconfiguration Possibilities <ul><li>The channels need not be fixed before hand. Dynamic reconfiguration is very much possible. </li></ul><ul><li>In the fig, there are six audio channels and nine data channels. Each audio channel as a Program Associated Data (PAD) </li></ul><ul><li>At the transmitter, if the system comes to know that there are two additional data packets D10 & D11 and then Channel 3 does not need 192 Kbps bit rate, it can reconfigure to 128 kbps and use the additional BW available for the additional DATA. </li></ul>
  26. 27. Multimedia Object Transfer Protocol <ul><li>The DAB frames have to support the high end receivers that support extended graphics as well as the existing receivers that support simple one-line displays. </li></ul><ul><li>This brought in the need for the MOT standards. </li></ul>
  27. 28. MOT standard Protocol <ul><li>MOT Object : </li></ul><ul><li>Header Core : 7 Byte </li></ul><ul><li>- Size of header, Size of Body and type of object. </li></ul>Header Core Header Extension Body
  28. 29. MOT standard Protocol <ul><li>MOT Object : </li></ul><ul><li>Header Extension : </li></ul><ul><li>Repetition distance (as explained earlier – skewed, flat disk etc related) </li></ul><ul><li>Segmentation info </li></ul><ul><li>Priority </li></ul><ul><li>Body: </li></ul><ul><li>Contains data as described by the header fields . </li></ul>
