Doubletalk Carrier-in-Carrier

DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier, based on patented “Adaptive Cancellation” technology, allows transmit and receive carriers of a duplex link to share the same
transponder bandwidth. DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier is complementary to all advances in modem technology, including advanced FEC and modulation techniques. As
these technologies approach theoretical limits of power and bandwidth efficiencies, DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier utilizing advanced signal processing techniques
provides a new dimension in bandwidth efficiency.

Figure 1 shows the typical full-duplex satellite link, where the two carriers are adjacent to each other.

Figure 2 shows the typical DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier operation, where the two carriers are overlapping, thus sharing the same spectrum.

When observed on a spectrum analyzer, only the Composite is visible. Carrier 1 and Carrier 2 are shown in Figure 2 for reference only.
As DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier allows equivalent spectral efficiency using a lower order modulation and/or code rate, it can reduce the power required to close the link
thereby reducing CAPEX by allowing a smaller BUC/HPA and/or antenna. Alternatively, DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier can be used to achieve very high spectral efficiencies E.g.,
DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier when used with 16-QAM approaches the bandwidth efficiency of 256-QAM (8 bps/Hz).

When combined with VersaFEC or LDPC/TPC, it can provide unprecedented savings in transponder bandwidth and power utilization. This allows for its successful deployment in
bandwidth-limited and power-limited scenarios, as well as reduction in earth station BUC/HPA power requirements.

Carrier-in-Carrier Automatic Power Control (CnC-APC)

The patent-pending Carrier-in-Carrier Automatic Power Control (CnC-APC) mechanism enables modems on both sides of a CnC link to automatically measure and compensate for rain
fade while maintaining the Total Composite Power. In addition to automatically compensating for rain fade, CnC-APC also enables the modems to share link margin, i.e. a modem
in clear sky conditions can effectively transfer excess link margin to a distant end modem experiencing fade, thereby further enhancing overall availability.

VersaFEC Forward Error Correction

CDM-625A offers VersaFEC, a patent-pending system of high-performance LDPC codes designed to provide maximum coding gain while minimizing latency. VersaFEC is designed to
support ACM and CCM mode of operation.

The Ultra Low Latency (ULL) codes provide even lower latency compared to standard VersaFEC codes.

Adaptive Coding & Modulation (ACM)

Satellite users have traditionally relied on worst case link margin to overcome rain fade which leads to significant inefficiencies. ACM can provide significant increase in
throughput as well as availability. ACM converts the fade margin into increased capacity making it possible to more than double the throughput for Ku-Band operation. Even
under deep fade, ACM may be able to maintain the link at the lower MODCOD thereby increasing availability. It is tightly integrated with packet processor QoS which allows
higher priority, mission critical traffic to be maintained even during fade.

Low Density Parity Check Codes (LDPC) & Turbo Product Codes (TPC)

CDM-625A offers an integrated LDPC and 2nd Generation TPC codec. LDPC is an advanced Forward Error Correction technique capable of providing performance much closer to Shannon
limit. The current LDPC implementation can provide 0.7 to 1.2 dB additional coding gain compared to an equivalent TPC code.

Ericsson RX9500 Bulk Descrambler

The Ericsson RX9500 Bulk Descrambler provides Cable, IPTV, and other Direct to Home operators with the capability to efficiently turn-around encrypted and free to air content from satellite platforms.

The RX9500 allows operators to demodulate and descramble 10s or 100s of services from multiple satellite transponders within a high density, low rack unit occupancy solution.

The RX9500 forms part of Ericsson’s Multi-Platform Headend Solution, interfacing seamlessly with Ericsson’s encoders and transcoders. The RX9500 Bulk Descrambler is simple to set up and configure offering the benefit of a single management, control and monitoring solution for the complete turn-around system through Ericsson’s nCompass Control platform.

RX9500 Descrambler Overview

Channel Density
The RX9500 Bulk Descrambler allows operators to turn-around 10s or hundreds of satellite delivered services within a high density, low rack occupancy solution. The RX9500 can be configured to process up to 6 satellite multiplexes of scrambled or free to air content.

Common Interface Descrambling
The RX9500 Bulk Descrambler is able to descramble services via DVB Common Interface modules ensuring that all frequently used CA systems can be addressed. The RX9500 allows two CAMs to be used per satellite multiplex—ensuring that a high density of services can be descrambled and allows for multiple CA systems on a transponder.

Simple Architecture
The RX9500 Bulk Descrambler exemplifies the benefits of a simple architecture. Each satellite multiplex is processed as siloed modules without dependency on other inputs. Each descrambled or FTA channel is output as an easy to manage single program transport stream on IP interfaces allowing the down-stream equipment to effectively process the services.

One System, One Management Platform
Through Ericsson’s Multi-Platform Headend Solution operators can deploy a complete content turn-around solution—where each element can seamlessly interface with the other elements; all monitored and controlled by nCompass Control as a single overarching control platform.

Why Ericsson
