Owing to its modular design and implementation, the SATIP6 satellite emulation platform is able to emulate a transparent DVB-RCS (Digital Video Broadcasting — Return Channel via Satellite) system dimensioned around a single Hub, or a system using a regenerative satellite with an on-board switching matrix only by changing some configuration files. After a presentation of the SATIP6 project and architecture, we detail emulation techniques and the QoS architecture that was finally adopted.
