Improve satellite bandwidth efficiency through signal interference reduction
Carrier ID is part of the NovelSat strategy to maintain market leadership for its products in jamming and interference resilience in addition to being the leaders in spectral efficiency. NovelSat transmission equipment already offers major signal resilience advantages on the receiving side.
CID refers to a signal that is injected into video or data transmissions by a satellite modulator or modem to help identify the source of carrier interference. Each satellite communication device transmits a unique ID along with information about the device and the session. The CID is transmitted below the noise floor of the carrier and is detected by special measurement receivers so that an interfering carrier can be easily identified to enable quick resolution of an interference situation.
When conflicting signals interfere with a satellite transmission, the bandwidth that is allocated for clean transmission is used less efficiently. NovelSat transmission devices, powered by NovelSat NS4 satellite transmission technology, have built-in mechanisms for mitigating signal interference, intentional jamming, weather fluctuations and phase noise.
With CID support, NovelSat gear offers yet another way to resolve signal interference, resulting in even lower cost per MHz.
The configured CID parameters are:
- CID Latitude: Determines CID latitude information to transmit.
- CID Longitude: Determines CID longitude information to transmit.
- CID Phone: Determines CID Phone number information to transmit.
- CID Phone Extension: Determines CID Phone number extension information to transmit.
