The course is designed for individuals with a working knowledge of satellite communications, mobile communications and ethernet technologies who desire to acquire greater knowledge in the areas of network planning, satellite use cases, and technical and regulatory challenges.

The course will start with a quick overview of satellite communications, carrier ethernet, mobile backhaul, and ethernet-based leased lines, followed by typical examples of satellite use cases for corporate leased lines and mobile backhaul applications. The knowledge gained will help equip participants to excel in their professional lives and make technical and business decisions that help their business grow further.

This course aims to provide participants with the knowledge and skills required to plan, design, and optimize ethernet-based satellite leased lines and mobile backhaul solutions using satellite networks. At the end of the course, participants will learn the following:

  • Fundamentals of satellite leased lines based on ethernet
  • MEF-standardized services
  • Attributes of point-to-point, multipoint-to-multipoint and rooted-multipoint services
  • Ethernet OAM based on IEEE 802.3ah
  • Bandwidth profiles for satellite – Committed Information Rate and Excess Information Rate
  • Basic architecture of mobile communications (3G/4G/5G)
  • Mobile backhaul concepts
  • Ethernet radios and their features
  • Case studies

1. Introduction to Satellite Communications

  • Frequency Spectrum and Propagation
  • Satellite Orbits: LEO, MEO, GEO

  • Satellite Limitations: Propagation
  • Delay
  • Satellite Transponder
  • Large Earth Stations and VSATs
  • Link Power Budget: Path Loss and EIRP
  • Footprints: Global, Regional and Narrow Spot Beams
  • Multiple Access Methods: FDMA, TDAM, CDMA
  • Single Channel Per Carrier vs Multiple Channel Per Carrier

2. Carrier Ethernet and its Differentiating Attributes

  • Standardized Services
  • Scalability
  • Service Management
  • Reliability – Protection Schemes in Layer 1, 2, 2.5
  • Deterministic QoS

3. MEF-Based Standardized Services

  • Ethernet Frame Structure
  • Point-to-Point, Multipoint-to-Multipoint, Rooted-Multipoint Services
  • Port-Based vs VLAN-Based Services
  • Single Network vs Multi-Network Services
  • Service Multiplexing and Bundling

4. Bandwidth Profiles

  • Quality of Service and Class of Service
  • Committed Information Rate and
  • Committed Burst Size (CIR, CBS)
  • Excess Information Rate and Excess Burst Size (EIR, EBS)
  • PCP and DEI Bits
  • Multiple Profiles and Envelope

5. OAM based on IEEE 802.3ah

  • Basic Terminology – MEG, MEP, MIP, ME, SOAM Domains
  • Service OAM vs Link OAM
  • Performance Management – Delay Measurement, Loss Measurement, Single-ended, Dual-ended

Note: A Certificate of Completion will only be issued upon achieving at least 75% attendance for the course.

  • Participants should have a basic understanding of telecommunications and some knowledge of satellite communications and mobile backhaul
  • Some background in wireless would be beneficial
