Title Communications protocol to transport satellite delivered signals over IP networks
Project Number 24286
Abstract/Scope This document describes the SAT>IP communication protocol. It enables a SAT>IP server to forward satellite delivered signals to SAT>IP clients over IP networks. The typical use case would be the transport of television programs that were received from the satellite by the SAT>IP server to the SAT>IP client via the IP network. SAT>IP specifies a control protocol as well as the media transport (Figure 1). Figure 1 — Basic principle of the SAT>IP system SAT>IP is not a device specification. The SAT>IP protocol distinguishes between SAT>IP clients and SAT>IP servers. SAT>IP Clients SAT>IP clients may reside in set-top boxes equipped with an IP interface or may be implemented as software applications running on programmable hardware such as Tablets, PCs, Smartphones, Connected Televisions. SAT>IP Servers SAT>IP servers may take various forms ranging from large MDU headends servicing whole buildings or communities to in-home IP multiswitches to simple IP adapters for a set-top box to, ultimately, IP LNBs. Actual devices may be clients or servers or both depending on their feature set.
