This paper presents the results from the EU FP 7 project BATS aimed at integrated BB access across the EU for 2020 and beyond. The BB access is integrated between DSL, LTE and the satellite and features a broadband intelligent user terminal. The satellite component is a cluster of two multibeam HTS satellites providing lower cost per bit than today’s satellites. The system architecture embedding the gateways and user terminals is presented as well as the design for the advanced satellites. The detailed design concepts of the intelligent router are also provided. We present the results of controlled lab tests on an emulated test bed as well as initial results from a field trial in which the intelligent routers were placed in households in Spain and Germany and connected to local; DSL and LTE as well as the Hylas satellite.


This work has been supported by the BATS research project which is funded by the European Commission Seventh Framework Programme under contract n.317533. The authors of this paper would like to acknowledge the European Commission Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and the members of the BATS Consortium.
