Abstract

This article presents Eutelsat European Ka-band implementation of the broadband ToowayTM service and its evolution through a dedicated Ka-band exclusive satellite (KA-SAT). It also explains Eutelsat’s choice in selecting the Ka-band for interactive services, broadcast video and IPTV services, demonstrating the optimal consumer service synergy between existing Ku-band and new Ka-band services.

KA-SAT satellite is not focusing only on consumer triple-play services. Indeed, Eutelsat strategy consists in offering also professional video and data services in Ka-band (video distribution, video contribution, e-cinema, file transport) sharing the same transparent satellite bandwidth and the same ground segment infrastructure.

For those professional video applications the last content processing (SVC) and satellite transport (DVB-S2 ACM) techniques are under deployment and this paper will present simulation results and link budgets estimations for a large number of future commercial applications.
