EDI/RADIO DTT over Satellite – Direct To Tower distribution
SATELLITE NETWORK OPERATORS
Terrestrial Radio broadcast (DAB/FM) networks usually require several thousands of digital terrestrial transmitters/repeaters to insure 99.9% coverage of a country. It means that each DAB/FM multiplex must be distributed to thousands of terrestrial transmitter… Thanks to one and only one satellite spot beam, all transmitters can receive its content while it requires many links (microwave, optical fiber or IP based) with a ground infrastructure. It makes the satellite distribution a quick and cost effective solution.
Reduce satellite OPEX costs
- Using GSE encapsulation allows a better efficiency by reducing the encapsulation overhead compared to MPE technology
- Satellite is a pipeline where any kind of contents as DAB as well as FM channels
EDI over GSE encapsulation had already been deployed in several major networks around the world
