Whether you operate a DVB-T(2), ISDB-T or ATSC network, the challenges to deliver services to the SLA targets are the same. Terrestrial networks are unique by nature. There is the need for managing workloads that are spread over a large geographical area. Remote connectivity to regional or transmitter sites may be a challenge, relying on low bandwidth/high latency pipes or even running in-band and unidirectionally. Given the limited terrestrial bandwidth, complex automation is required to schedule timesharing of services, and change the service audio, video and metadata components on the fly. Furthermore, as new standards such as ATSC 3 emerge that combined OTT with terrestrial delivery, the complexity of the network increases, as does the level of cloud deployments. Consequently, an end-to-end multi-vendor and AI enabled platform is of great strategic importance to any DTT operator.
