Star Nova S2 is the latest advanced satellite transmission technique from DVB, improving on and expanding the range of applications possible with DVBs tried and trusted DVB-S. 'DVB-S2 is so powerful that in the course of our lifetime, we will never need to design another system' - Barry Tew (DVB) The ViaSat® Star Nova S2 system is a two-way, bandwidth-on-demand broadband VSAT system designed around the DVB-RCS standard for service providers, ISPs, and corporate networks. Star Nova S2 brings more efficiency and higher data rates to the market than other TDMA systems. The Star Nova S2 Broadband VSAT System combines broadband access and a high-speed return channel to satisfy bandwidth-intensive applications using IP data over any fixed satellite. Since their introduction, LinkStar® VSATs have been built on a foundation of open standard DVB technology, including a DVB-S or DVB-S2 forward link and DVB-RCS return link. A LinkStar-S2 terminal can operate in either of two over-the-air downloadable software personalities. The DVB-RCS software enables interoperability with other manufacturers. The standard LinkStar e-ATM software includes additional advanced features not included in the DVB-RCS standard. The Star Nova S2 system compliant technology includes advanced LDPC (Low Density Parity Check) coding for ultra-low Eb/No performance near Shannon's theoretical limit along with 8PSK coding for bandwidth reductions up to 30% below traditional values. t offers satellite link speeds up to 81 Mbps on the outbound channel and up to 4.2 Mbps on the inbound channels to the hub. With this high inbound channel capacity, remote sites can be server locations, content providers, multimedia sources, video teleconferencing participants, and corporate headquarters. KEY POINTS:Multiple inbound access schemes to support a wide range of applications Bandwidth on Demand (BoD) Committed Information Rate (CIR) Application-triggered BoD/CIR CIR reallocation Slotted Aloha Frequency hopping across carriers Acceleration and compression to improve link efficiency and user experience TCP Acceleration HTTP Acceleration (optional appliance) Header compression for VoIP traffic What this means to WAFA and its customersMany satellite broadband providers see the projected 30% saving in satellite capacity as potentially 30% more profits. We at WAFA plan to invest back into the network the extra capacity gained through the implementation of DVB S2. Example:36 MHz Saturated Carrier DVB S DVB S2 Coding RS Viterbi LDPC FEC 7/8 3/4 Carrier Spacing 1.28 1.25 Comparative throughput 45.4 Mbps 58.5.Mbps Extra bandwidth available as same cost to operator NA ~29 % This means that for every 20Mbps that WAFA purchase off the satellite operator we can place 25.8 Mbps on the network at the same costs as the original DVBS platform.This means:Extra capacity on the network Faster downloads & browsing Lower contention rates on the forward channel Much higher daily download quotas with more frequent resets Star Nova S2 ModemThe WAFA Star Nova S2 system is a two-way, bandwidth-on-demand broadband VSAT system designed around the DVB-RCS standard for service providers, ISP's and corporate networks.
