El Departamento de Ingeniería de Sistemas Telemáticos (DIT) de la ETSIT-UPM será la sede de la reunión del grupo de estandarización “DVB TM-RCS: Technical Module for Return Channel Satellite” durante los días 1 y 2 de febrero de 2012.

Thales Alenia Space (TASE) es un miembro muy activo en este grupo con el que el DIT ha estado colaborando durante muchos años en proyectos de ámbito nacional e internacional. Actualmente, los grupos de “Redes y Servicios de Comunicaciones”, “Ingeniería de Servicios Avanzados de Internet” y “Sistemas de tiempo real y arquitectura de servicios telemáticos” del DIT participan con TASE en el proyecto de I+D+i “MediaSat - Plataforma de Gestión y Servicios Avanzados” del plan nacional AVANZA en donde se está definiendo la integración de las redes de acceso por satélite con los estándares de redes de nueva generación (NGN). Este aspecto será el tema principal de la reunión del TM-RCS.

 

A continuación se describe brevemente el perfil del grupo de estandarización DVB TM-RCS:

 

 The Digital Video Broadcasting Project (DVB) is an industry-led consortium of around 250 broadcasters, manufacturers, network operators, software developers, regulatory bodies and others in over 35 countries committed to designing open technical standards for the global delivery of digital television and data services.

 

First published back in 2000, DVB-RCS (Return Channel Satellite) is a technical standard that defines a complete air interface specification for two-way satellite broadband VSAT (very small aperture terminal) systems. DVB-RCS provides users with the equivalent of an ADSL or cable Internet connection, without the need for local terrestrial infrastructure. The standard is published by ETSI as EN 301 790, and can be downloaded from the ETSI or DVB websites.


The DVB TM-RCS working group continues to meet regularly and is currently working on the Next Generation version – the first complete update of all elements, since the beginning. While this 2nd generation version still will secure, preserve and strengthen all the features and aspects for where DVB-RCS is most recognized, the current work also targets both an extension of the DVB-RCS markets further into larger networks and lower cost terminals as requested by the consumer markets, as well as also having excellent characteristics for smaller networks.

 

The current activities of Technical Module for RCS (TM-RCS) most likely constitute the largest standardization initiative for satellite communications to date – worldwide.
