PEREZ-TRUFERO, J. ... et al., 2015. Next generation HTS system using hybrid satellite and terrestrial BB delivery- BATS. Presented at: 21st KA Band Conference, Bologna, Italy, 12-14 October 2015.
This paper presents the results from the EU FP 7 project BATS aimed at integrated BB access across
the EU for 2020 and beyond. The BB access is integrated between DSL, LTE and the satellite and
features a broadband intelligent user terminal. The satellite component is a cluster of two multibeam
HTS satellites providing lower cost per bit than today’s satellites. The system architecture embedding
the gateways and user terminals is presented as well as the design for the advanced satellites. The
detailed design concepts of the intelligent router are also provided. We present the results of
controlled lab tests on an emulated test bed as well as initial results from a field trial in which the
intelligent routers were placed in households in Spain and Germany and connected to local; DSL and
LTE as well as the Hylas satellite.
