Abstract

The paper investigates coding and encapsulation techniques for the possible extension of the digital video broadcasting-return channel satellite (DVB-RCS) to ensure a global coverage for mobile terminals. specifically, link layer- forward error correction (LL-FEC) appears to be a reliable solution, allowing to improve the C/N performance and to counteract the Doppler effect typical of mobile channels, avoiding scalability and latency issues of Automatic Repeat reQuest (ARQ) approaches. In the paper we evaluate LL-FEC performance when applied to the railway environment. It is shown how this scenario deeply affects the LL-FEC code performance both in the multi protocol encapsulation (MPE), and the generic stream encapsulation (GSE) cases. In order to counteract this performance reduction two different approaches are considered. In the first case, we increase the number of rows of the LL-FEC Reed Solomon (RS) matrix. In the second case we exploit the sliding encoding mechanism. We also introduce a modified version of GSE that shows reduced overhead and improved performance. Results show that DVB-RCS can greatly benefit from LL-FEC RS coding in reducing residual errors that cannot be counteracted at the physical layer for efficiency reasons.
