Abstract

Digital satellite broadcasting, primarily targeted to unidirectional services, soon expanded to the interactive domain, utilising uplink technologies such as DVB-RCS. In this context, due to their wide and uniform coverage, satellites can provide an ideal medium for the provision of triple play services (voice, video and data) to remote areas not covered by terrestrial infrastructures. This paper discusses and demonstrates the delivery of triple play services over a fully functional platform utilising the second-generation satellite broadcasting technology (DVB-S2) for the downlink combined with DVB-RCS for the uplink.
