Abstract

The evolution of DVB networks towards IP systems has led to the introduction of a Generic Stream format in second-generation systems. A Generic Stream Encapsulation (GSE) protocol was designed as an efficient and extensible IP encapsulation protocol for the DVB-S2 system, and there is growing interest to adopt GSE for other second-generation DVB carriers. The DVB-SH mobile standard includes provisions for GSE, but a number of adaptations are required for full support. This paper focuses on the seamless transport of GSE packets over the DVB-SH distribution network towards modulators. To this end architectural aspects are discussed and a specific protocol is proposed.
