Digital video broadcast return channel via satellite system (RCS) is a key European standard that specifies a broadband satellite system using dynamic capacity assignment and multi-frequency time-division multiple access. This study introduces new architectural components for an RCS system to support advanced Internet protocol (IP)-oriented multimedia. This will allow closer integration of satellite networks with the next generation of multimedia-enabled networks enabling operators to offer triple-play services that simultaneously support voice over IP, television-over IP and other services. These types of services are particularly suited to next generation satellite systems that combine transparent and multi-spot beam satellites with on-board regenerative signal processing, and can evolve to use adaptive coding and modulation.
