System hardware components

The transmitting station (also called “teleport”, “head end”, “uplink facility”, or “hub”) has two components:

  • nternet connection: The ISP’s routers connect to proxy servers which can enforce quality of service (QoS) bandwidth limits and guarantees for user traffic. These are then connected to a DVB encapsulator which is then connected to a DVB-S modem. The radio frequency (RF) signal from the DVB-S modem is connected to an up converter which is connected via feed line to the outdoor unit.
  • Satellite uplink: The block upconverter (BUC) and optional low-noise block converter (LNB), which may use a waveguide to connect to the optional orthomode transducer (OMT) which is bolted to the feed horn which is connected by metal supports to the satellite dish and mount.

At the remote location (Earth station) the setup consists of:

Outdoor unit

  • Satellite dish with mount
  • Feedhorn
  • Universal LNB, for Ku band.
  • Feed line

Indoor unit

  • DVB-S Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) card internal to a computer
  • or, DVB external modem where an 8P8C (RJ-45) Ethernet port or a Universal Serial Bus (USB) port connects the modem to the computer
