Comtech EF Data: Pending DVB-CID Standard is Based on MetaCarrier Technology
Mar 11, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Comtech EF Data Corp. announced that the pending DVB-CID ETSI TS 103 129 standard for combating satellite interference is based on its MetaCarrier technology.
The Company reported that satellite interference has a significant financial impact on both satellite operators and end users. Comtech EF Data said it developed the MetaCarrier technology to address this severe, industry-wide challenge. This standard will directly benefit users and operators in the avoidance of accidental interference.
The MetaCarrier technology embeds and detects a small message and unique ID within a video or data satellite carrier. This embedded message and ID significantly reduce the time to identify and clear interference sources. The MetaCarrier is embedded using spread spectrum techniques within the carrier itself without adding appreciable noise or power to the host carrier. The spread spectrum signal enables the host carrier to be identified even when the host carrier is well below another carrier or near the noise floor itself.
"We are pleased that our spread spectrum techniques will benefit the industry at large," commented Frederick Morris, vice president sales engineering for Comtech EF Data. "The adoption of Carrier ID will enable users and operators to resolve interference events more rapidly, while reducing the personnel dedicated to interference mitigation, towards the goal of increased service quality."
