Enhancement of DVB-S2 Network Stability and Performance for Mobile User Groups

Mohammed S. Zahrani

Digital Video Broadcast-Satellite 2 (DVB-S2) is a second generation technology which is developed and standardized as an evolution of Digital Video Broadcast (DVB-S) by European Telecommunication Standard Institute (ETSI). This investigation is mainly based on the study and analysis of DVB-S2 networks for mobile users. The DVB-S revolutionizes broadcasting industry in terms of providing TV contents to sub-continents over satellite. While the DVB-S2 provides enhancements in broadcasting television contents such as high definition TV, which can be provided to viewers on a reduced cost. The DVB-S2 describes the methods in which the data is framed, encoded and modulated for transmission over a satellite channel. The DVB-S2 comes from the same family of DVB-S with robust features. Applications related to broadcast industry covered in DVB-S2 are High Definition TV (HDTV), SDTV, Digital Satellite NEWS Gathering (DSNG) and TV distribution to terrestrial transmitters. This study presented DVB-S2 capabilities of handling mobility issues specifically on mobile platforms including the simulation of Adaptive Coding Modulation (ACM), atmospheric effects and noisy channels. This study introduced ACM engine which allows tuning of satellite systems and analyzing system stability and performance. This study highlighted the importance for conducting further study in order to propose an appropriate solution to enhance the link stability under bad climate conditions.
