SOPHIA ANTIPOLIS, France -- Satellite systems delivering broadband multimedia services need to be effectively managed to ensure satisfactory performance is maintained. In order to help improve compatibility of performance management functions of satellite systems and their network components a set of new specifications has been issued for ETSI Broadband Satellite Multimedia (BSM) systems. These specifications cover key issues needed in a functional framework for managing IP (Internet Protocol) services over satellite.

The approach used by ETSI’s Technical Committee for Satellite Earth Stations and Systems (TC-SES) has been to ensure that protocols developed for terrestrial IP networks by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) are compatible with Satellite systems, using BSM-defined adaptation when needed.
