SAT>IP

Overview: SAT>IP is an IP-based architecture for receiving and distributing satellite signals. The intention of the SAT>IP project partners is to make SAT>IP an international standard that can be widely implemented in the satellite ecosystem worldwide and that is compatible across manufacturers and operators. In traditional satellite reception systems, RF (Radio Frequency) satellite signals are only translated in frequency before being distributed via dedicated coaxial cables. Satellite receivers are necessary to receive and demodulate satellite signals. With SAT>IP, satellite-delivered DVB-S/S2 RF signals are demodulated and converted towards IP at the point of reception in a SAT>IP server.
