The tour offers participants the unique opportunity to speak to experts from the entire chain of Carrier ID implementation, as well as learning about other interference measures. For the technology to be successful, CID needs to be present throughout the process, which begins at “Transmission” with the modulators and DSNG encoders. Certainly many of the modulators on the market are already CID enabled and by IBC we will also see the launch of the first single thread DSNG encoder with CID enabled. The next part of the process is “Detection,” and there are a number of CID detection systems available on the market. Naturally, “Resolution” is the final and most valuable part of the process, and is handled by the satellite operators. The major players have already invested heavily in both time and money to mitigate interference and are continuously upgrading and installing new carrier monitoring systems that now include CID detection.
The tour itself will walk participants through those stages, beginning with how CID is included at transmission, visiting encoder and modulator manufacturer, Work Microwave. It will then look at how CID is detected after transmission, which will involve demos from Crystal Solutions, SAT Corporation and Siemens Convergence Creators. It will also feature the analysis tool from Integrasys, before looking at how CID is resolved with satellite operators, including Arabsat, Eutelsat, and SES.
