Italian solutions developer using satellite systems seeks partners for EU projects

Country of Origin: Italy
Reference Number: TOIT20180116002
Publication Date: 30 January 2018


An Italian research consortium active in the space sector has developed an emulation platform able to reproduce the behaviour of a DVB-RCS (real digital video broadcasting - return channel satellite) system from the network point of view. The Italian group is seeking research cooperation agreements with H2020 applicants in all Europe, USA and Canada, in order to support partners in the design phase or to validate solutions that can include real applications and real-hardware.


The research consortium is composed of eighteen prestigious Italian universities. Its background and technology skill focus on space sector and has permitted to develop and validate optimum solutions using satellite systems for telecommunication purpose. In the satellite communication sector it offers capabilities of deep analysis and performance evaluation of complex systems. The offered technology consists in a platform that permits to optimise the dimension of the communication-band to the satellite and vice versa. 
The optimisation of the communication can be applied to many selected systems: local analogue network connected to satellite channels, internet over high speed trains, security in heterogeneous networks, protocol adaptation and optimization, sensor networks, delay tolerant networks, very small aperture terminal (VSAT), digital video broadcasting (DVB) return channel satellite (DVB-RCS) system, telemedicine, emergency communications.
The technology offers the capability to support companies in the design phase of customised solutions. Moreover the validation of real hardware and applications is a typical activity already performed with several companies or public institutions customers.
The Italian consortium is looking for partners for a research cooperation agreement to join a consortium for a research project under the H2020 Work Programs..

Advantages and Innovations

The developed emulation platform is capable to reproduce the behaviour of a real digital video broadcasting (DVB) return channel satellite (DVB-RCS) system from the network point of view, including media access control (MAC) and physical layer (PHY) simulation (e.g., demanded assigned multiple access (DAMA), bandwidth on demand, channel error models), and part of Satellite specification such us: quality of service (QoS) and command and control protocol (P2P) for several terminals (up to one thousand and more). It works in real time, processing data traffic as it would happen on a real DVB-RCS (or different standard) system, either from local traffic loaders or external Software/hardware by means of Ethernet interface.

Stage Of Development

Prototype available for demonstration

Requested partner

The Italian consortium is interested in participating in H2020 calls in order to collaborate in research projects and industrial applications.
The type and role of partner sought are companies (SME & Industry), institutions and research centres already engaged as coordinators or project partners in a consortium for a European call to be funded, or planning to find partners to create a new one.
The aim of a research cooperation within a H2020 project consortium is to validate solutions that can include real applications and real-hardware.
