Ending the menace of jamming and interference


Published on

Koen Willems from Newtec recently made a presentation at Milsatcom Middle East about satellite interference, Carrier-ID and all related aspects.

- Carrier ID - what you really need to know
- How you can combat carrier interference yourself
- How manufacturers like Newtec are implementing Carrier ID functionality in their products.
- How does Carrier ID work ?
- Some important milestone dates you need to know about !

If you want to check out our products that support Carrier ID, just visit the products section on Newtec's website. With every product we indicated the support for Carrier ID.

  2. 2. CARRIER IDWHAT YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW(1)It helps fightinginterference(2)It is available(3)It is a standard andas suchinteroperable(4)It becomesmandatory by end2014
  3. 3. Newtec Proprietary – Unrestricted• Training operational staff on best practices• Automated terminal configuration(e.g. Newtec´s MENOS)• Satellite pointing technology(e.g. Newtec´s Point and Play®)• Steerable antenna’s / filters on satellites… and embedding a Carrier Identifier (CID) into thecarrier for a robust yet quick pinpointing of thesource of the interferenceCounter Measures forSCPC linksREADY TOCOMBAT CARRIERINTERFERENCE?
  4. 4. Newtec Proprietary – Unrestricted• Phase 1 : Carrier ID in DVB NIT Table (WBU-ISOG – 2009)• MPEG TS (~Video)• Changes Network Information Table (NIT) table in original stream• Low robustness - CID not recoverable if main carrier is down• Phase 2 : DVB Carrier ID standard (DVB-CID - 2013)• Agnostic to traffic carrier or transport mechanism (TS video & IP data)• No changes DVB-CID is overlay to original carrier• Higher, can be decoded even if main carrier is jammed• Need for standardisation and interoperabilityIntroducing Carrier ID inSatcom EquipmentREADY TOCOMBAT CARRIERINTERFERENCE?New Carrier ID Technology Approved For StandardisationIsle of Man, 7 March 2013 – The Satellite Interference Reduction Group (IRG) todayannounced that the DVB Carrier ID (DVB-CID) specification, supported by IRG and itsmembers, has been approved by the DVB Steering Board on 28th February 2013. Thespecification will now be submitted to the European Telecommunications StandardsInstitute (ETSI) for formal standardization
