New Architecture for Next Generation Broadband Satellite Systems: The SATSIX Approach
The EU-funded IST FP6 Project Satellite-based communications systems within IPv6 (SATSIX) is implementing and validating innovative concepts and cost-effective solutions for broadband satellite systems that build upon the DVB-RCS/S2 standards and services. It promotes the introduction of IPv6 into satellite-based communications systems and the development of hybrid networks that combine the use of satellite with wireless access technologies. The main objective is to lower the cost of broadband satellite access, through the development of new satellite access techniques and the integration of wireless local loops (WiFi and WiMax). Simulations, test beds and trial networks will show how satellite broadband access can be integrated into Next Generation Networks, based on IPv6, to support new multimedia applications.
