Five Considerations for Choosing HTS-DVB-S2X Platform

  1. 1. Five Considerations for Choosing a HTS/DVB-S2X Platform
  2. 2. The satellite communications industry is entering a new phase of growth Ultra High Throughput Satellites (UHTS) DVB-S2X Standard Improved Satellite Economics Vast Market Opportunities + = +
  3. 3. When considering HTS and DVB-S2X satellite operators and service providers must determine which ground infrastructure capabilities will equip them with the greatest competitive advantage to capitalize on growth opportunities.
  4. 4. Here are five critical points to consider for harnessing HTS and DVB-S2X Enable Higher Capacity Efficiencies Implement Intelligent Terminals Scale Cost-Effectively Enable Mainstream Network Integration Make it Mobile 1 2 3 4 5
  5. 5. 1. Enable Higher Capacity Efficiencies
  6. 6. HTS, when combined with the right remote RF capabilities, delivers higher efficiencies and performance, effectively lowering the cost per bit of satellite capacity. The DVB-S2X standard defines higher modulations ranging up to 256APSK and standardized roll-off factors down from 20% to 5%. The right ground infrastructure platform should offer the highest possible MODCODs and saturate wideband transponders and provide full Adaptive capabilities on the out- and inbound.
  7. 7. An important measure of bandwidth performance is how well a platform can source and allocate satellite capacity across many spot beams. The ability to create highly flexible and customized service plans in a shared bandwidth pool will allow you to sell different services and monetize their capacity in the most effective way. Look for a solution that can integrate any type of capacity into a global bandwidth pool, and then enables you to dynamically allocate bandwidth as needed to create tiered Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
  8. 8. With HTS/ UHTS satellite generations Satellite operators can design new satellite architectures with features like beam hopping to be able to adjust their payload based on real-time demand on the ground. This capability to measure and respond to demand will drive revolutionary efficiency gains in the years ahead when integration is done right. So when satellite operators are designing their next-generation payloads, they need a ground infrastructure partner that can support intelligent payloads on their platforms.
  9. 9. 2. Implement Intelligent Terminals
  10. 10. The remote design enabled with full DVB-S2X capabilities is a critical aspect of delivering performance and efficiency gains to the overall solution. The iQ Series Remote
  11. 11. • Continually upgrade over the air to increase network capabilities and throughput levels • Dramatically extend deployment life in the field. • Leverage re-programmability to support other waveforms, by working more efficiently on different GEO HTS platforms or different orbits like MEO and LEO. Through software-defined remote architectures, the next generation of remotes can:
  12. 12. • Extends  remote  field  life  and  reduces  installation  complexities • Reduces  the  hardware  and  energy  footprint • Lowers  deployment  costs Embedded  computing,  where  remotes  combine  the  VSAT’s  core   technology  with  third-­‐party  applications  to  bring  capabilities  closer  to  the  edge.
  13. 13. 3. Scale Cost-Effectively
  14. 14. Operating large networks spanning multiple spot beams versus one wide beam can make scaling more challenging for satellite operators and service providers.
  15. 15. Consider hub solutions leveraging virtualization and cloud-computing • Significantly increases the hub’s capabilities to support extensive networks and higher throughputs in the same space • Massive footprint reduction at the teleport • Decreased cooling and IT management expenses because of size reduction
  16. 16. Satellite operators: Create virtual bandwidth pools across their entire payload Flexibility to sell wholesale capacity, offer managed Mbps services or offer vertically integrated solutions that encompass the entire value chain. Service providers: Will be in control of their own SLAs and service offerings to their end customers. Able to choose from different business models while managing a blended capacity and managed services portfolio all on one platform. Consider Bandwidth Management solutions that manage the extensive bandwidth spanning across multiple spot beams
  17. 17. 4. Enable Mainstream Network Integration
  18. 18. Keys to full mainstream adoption is for satellite networks: • To be defined by modern telco standards such as 4G/5G and Evolved Packet Core (EPC). • Support Layer 2 over Satellite (L2oS) capabilities • Take advantage of virtualized components and share virtual environments with cellular and telco functions • Unification of different networks that allow for devices to roam across any access network.
  19. 19. The goal for a ground infrastructure provider is to enable a fully automated, programmable and orchestrated network that allows service providers to deliver service on demand to meet any requirement rapidly and cost-effectively.
  20. 20. 5. Make it Mobile
  21. 21. Combining HTS with mobility applications presents a major challenge when it comes to managing complex SLAs across a large coverage area that spans multiple spot beams.
  22. 22. To enable seamless connectivity mobility networks require several specialized technologies • Ability for fast beam switching and make-before break connections when switching across multiple satellite beams • Compensate movement and potential blockages through doppler compensation and fast reacquisition • Sophisticated Bandwidth Manager for load balancing and SLA management across the entire fleet and across multiple beams • Spread spectrum and antenna interfaces to leverage flat panel technology and electronically steerable antennas
  23. 23. Expanding globally more cost-effectively will be easier for regional satellite operators or service providers when provider-to-provider service roaming is available where a customer can roam from a home network to a guest network while maintaining home service plans.
