Eutelsat completes Carrier ID implementation for its American coverage satellites in advance of the World Cup

Eutelsat and Siemens Convergence Creators raise the game of signal quality to support broadcaster efforts to give viewers a premier TV experience

Paris, 12 June 2014 – In advance of the World Cup, Eutelsat Communications (NYSE Euronext Paris: ETL) has taken a new step in deploying across its entire fleet a homogenous monitoring system designed to deliver broadcasters the highest level of service availability.

Working in collaboration with Siemens Convergence Creators, Eutelsat has completed the upgrade of its ground station in Mexico City with Siemens CVC’s SIECAMS® that is equipped for Carrier ID as well as interference localisation functionality. The Mexico City ground station is the Eutelsat Americas operations centre managing three Eutelsat satellites that together provide full coverage of the Americas, including Brazil.

Carrier ID is a technology developed to guarantee immediate identification of the source of satellite signals by creating unique identification numbers in each carrier that can be reliably detected and recognised. By accelerating the identification of unauthorised and inaccurately configured transmissions, Carrier ID represents a significant measure towards further improving signal integrity.

Eutelsat selected to deploy the SIECAMS® system across its fleet as it includes an integrated geolocalisation system that enables detection, classification and localisation of interference incidents without the need to manually transfer data to external applications. This integrated approach significantly accelerates the time needed to react to and resolve an incident.

Mark Rawlins, Director of Communications Systems Operations at Eutelsat, said: “Carrier ID is a global, industry-wide initiative aimed at guaranteeing the best quality of service to all users of satellite communications. Eutelsat has been a staunch supporter of this effort from the outset, partnering with companies that deliver the most advanced features to further raise the game of combating interference.” - Read More>>
