Avanza - 4play Project

Broadband, fixed telephony, mobile telephony and television in areas without access to telecommunications by traditional operators.



The present project is based on the approach of conventional fixed telephony, mobile, broadband and television services solutions, based on end-user terminals standard of the market, through specific solutions to be developed integrated in satellite communications, based on the sharing of resources, which allow the optimization of services in a low cost environment.

It takes place in four major phases, with their respective milestones:

  • Research and development of a satellite communication solution, multiplatform for both terrestrial and maritime services, defined for the integration of multiple services with demand for symmetric flows guaranteed in shared environments, where the scarcity of resources and high latency of satellite communications present great difficulties.
  • Research and development of IP telephony solutions with adaptive codec management so that they are adapted according to the instantaneous characteristics of bandwidth, their variation, latency, Jitter, packet loss and micro-cuts of the characteristic links of the satellite links, through the Development of distributed management solutions.
  • Ensure satellite interoperability of IP telephony services in mobile data networks, through iPhone and Android phones. Mobile IP access will be made from Wi-Fi networks and from microcells with 3G coverage of mobile operators, through Fem2Cell technologies.
  • Research and development of a video on demand management platform, which allows the integration of television and video channels, through the satellite link, using the free capacity of the rest of the services for transmission, through the development of algorithms that predict the behavior of users, and reagents depending on the available capacity.

The project proposes a multidisciplinary investigation in order to ensure that both the technical results and the intelligent solution are adapted to the needs of the users, both small or isolated municipalities, and passenger ships, as well as the end users who access the services through its standard market terminals, where technological developments have as a challenge to optimize all processes aimed at achieving low cost solutions.
