We propose and analyze two strategies to provide different levels of quality of service (QoS) to the DVB-SH standard. An extension of the interleaving scheme is investigated to support low latency service requirements for interactive services based on short messages. The first approach is a straightforward extension of the DVB-SH interleaver scheme based on… (More)
— The recently introduced Digital Video Broadcasting Satellite to Handheld standard (DVB-SH) allows for digital broadcasting service provision to small mobile terminals in satellite/terrestrial hybrid networks. In this paper, the key results from an in-depth DVB-SH performance assessment campaign lasting two years are reported. The performance results… (More)
Herein, the results of the ESA co-funded research project named " ORTIGIA " are summarized. The scope of the project was to validate experimentally the techniques introduced by the DVB-SH working group to counteract fading in satellite and terrestrial environments. The experiments include measurements both on the field and in the laboratory.
