MENOS Key Advantages
Deploying MENOS in partnership
with ASBU and Arabsat
Broadband Sytems
Multimedia Exchange Network over Satellite
Easy-to-use terminals
Once installed, MENOS terminals are connected to the network in an always-on mode. All network services
and terminal features are available on a single graphical user interface. Starting a video or audio transmission
requires no line-up procedure as the bandwidth reservation is done automatically.
Lower terminal cost
Because all communications are established via a central hub , MENOS terminals require much less power and
smaller dishes than point-to-point media exchange systems. The transmission equipment in the terminal is
IP-based, resulting in an overall terminal cost that is only a fraction of the cost of other types of satellite TV or
radio uplinks.
MENOS is a product developed and commercialized by Newtec, and is deployed over the Middle-East,
North Africa and Europe.in partnership with the Arab State Broadcasting Union (ASBU) and the Arab
Satellite Telecommunication Organization Arabsat
ASBU, which is currently operating a large international radio and television satellite exchange network
on the Arabsat satellite fleet, has awarded a contract to Newtec for the supply and installation of a
complete MENOS satellite network for the exchange of multimedia services.
Higher flexibility
In a MENOS system, the bandwidth is negotiated dynamically or reserved automatically depending on the
requested speed of delivery and the nature of the exchanged material. The multimedia material can be stored
anywhere in the network, including in a central archiving system where it can be accessed by any other remote
station via another satellite transmission.
Lower operational costs
By using the most advanced satellite transmission technologies such as DVB-S2 and by sharing dynamically
the available bandwidth among various applications, MENOS reduces the costs linked to the space segment.
On the ground, operational costs are also kept to a minimum thanks to the ease of use of the terminals and the
automation of the network management.
Arabsat and ASBU have entered into a Joint-Venture agreement for the MENOS space segment whereas
Ku-band will be used from the new Arabsat BADR-4 satellite positioned at 26° East and C-band capacity
will be used on Arabsat 2B
In a first phase of its deployment, this system will be used daily by the 25 full members and associated
members of ASBU to exchange real-time broadcasting content via a central HUB and up to 450 remote
terminals throughout the Middle-East and North Africa.
In a second phase, MENOS will be made available to any Arabsat customers for either Media content fi le
exchanges or to large Corporations, Enterprises, and SMEs for high-speed data fi le exchange.
Additional source of revenues
MENOS is much more than a system to exchange video and audio: it allows the development of many other
IP-based services such as Voice over IP (VoIP), corporate VPNs and Internet broadband access services.
High Quality of service
In a professional broadcast exchange network, the quality of service is paramount. As a fully automated
system where all remote operators always have access to a voice or data communication channel, MENOS
reduces the risk of human error. The equipment is very reliable and all transmissions can be backed up in the
central archiving system.

Applications
Broadband Access
All MENOS terminals (SIT) are equipped with a common
satellite broadband access part, so all users have access to
a shared high speed Wide Area Network (WAN) and benefit
from high performance application portals within their
community.
The common broadband access part in every terminal allows
applications such as:
• Intranet and Internet access
• IP multicast for content delivery
• File transfer of content to different locations
and to the central archive
• E-mail exchange
• Teleconference and distance education
Key features
•

•
•
High speed internet / intranet access
Unicast and Multicast traffic
Acceleration of traffic
Data/audio/video file transfer
Integrated encryption on all sessions and data
Support for real-time traffic for VoIP telephone calls
and live audio contribution
Key Benefits
• Always on, true broadband experience
• Cost effective exchange of data, voice, audio and video
• Efficient reservation of live or archived radio & video feeds
When MENOS is used for multimedia exchange, such
as television or radio contribution and distribution, the
broadband part of the network allows remote users to choose
the optimal method for delivering their content to other users
in the network, make the necessary capacity reservations and
control the access to the media content. Access to the central
media archiving server is also possible over the air. Thanks to
the broadband access subsystem of MENOS, these various
control and monitoring functions are all available on webbased interfaces throughout the MENOS network. Moreover,
the broadband network allows the users to communicate
from one remote location to another, enabling voice and data
coordination channels or live interactivity between the creator
of the content and its end user.

Technical description
The following collaboration applications examples are possible
with the MENOS collaboration service:
IP connectivity
IP connectivity allows the end-user to benefit from always-on
high-speed satellite internet access, supporting a broad range of
IP services, such as web browsing, e-mail, chat, FTP, Telnet …
1) A scheduled session with a few or up to hundreds of
people listening to a teacher/trainer with limited voice
only interactivity.
Teacher/Trainer lectures in “classroom” and has
presentations on his/her PC and a large number of
students follow the lecture passively on computers with
projectors/speakers with limited voice interaction.
Whether the user is a broadcaster, the operator of a mobile unit, a
journalist in the field, a technician in a TV station or anybody else,
several applications can be envisaged:
• Basic web browsing
• Transfer files between locations without
reservation of capacity
- Store video or audio files
- Retrieve video or audio files for local editing
- Transfer files between locations
• Reserve capacity using the web based capacity reservation
system for live or archived audio and video feed generation
• Chat with members of the team on different locations to
synchronise on events.
• Exchange e-mail from any location, at anytime.
2) Interactive training/teaching session with limited
number of participants allowed fully interactivity (voice,
video, data) and the rest of the individuals passively
watching with limited voice participation.
Trainer/teacher presenting/annotating on a whiteboard
and a limited number of trainees/students allowed
to also manipulate content at the teacher’s site and
interact with teacher via video and audio and the rest
of the students following passively with limited voice
interactivity.
VPN service
Voice over IP service
Professional users have the ability to create Virtual Private Network
(VPN) connections between locations to allow secured access
to and exchange of private data. The VPN’s are implemented
by the tunnel mode IPSec Internet standard, encrypting and
authenticating the entire IP packet contents for maximal security.
The availability of high quality VoIP coordination channels in
each MENOS terminal facilitates the daily operations and reduces
significantly the communication cost while consuming very little
satellite bandwidth.
Live Radio service
By using a VPN service the user can securely access important
resources provided by his organisation:
• Secure e-mail
• Secure web-services, like intranet.
• Secure access to TV/Radio archives
• Secure file transfer between locations without
reservation of capacity
- Store video or audio files
- Retrieve video or audio files for local editing
With the MENOS Radio SIT, radio stations can exchange live
or recorded digital radio programs. The broadband access
services allows for easy web-based reservations for live audio
feeds. Similarly, live radio content can be distributed with high
quality through the cost-efficient and always available multicast
streaming capability of the broadband access service of the
MENOS terminal.
Live TV service
Collaboration Service
Collaboration Services allow the creation of sessions with audio,
video and data sharing for applications such as distance learning,
sales and customer training, engineering discussion etc.
The broadband access services available in each MENOS terminal
allows for easy web-based reservations for live video feeds.
Another use of the broadband access service of the MENOS
terminals, is that video content can be distributed through costefficient multicast streaming, which can be captured and stored
on the MENOS terminal in local storage for screening at a later
time. A separate document is available describing this service in
detail.

Applications
Real-time Television Exchange
MENOS is a very flexible and efficient platform for the satellite
contribution and distribution of live television signals in
professional broadcast networks.
Television content often originates at regional sites. This
content is typically captured in high quality in order to allow
editing and various processing steps. The captured content
is then sent or contributed to a central location, from where
the content can be distributed to a number of national or
regional broadcast centers. Content contribution is typically a
point-to-point unicast transmission while content distribution
is generally a point-to-multipoint multicast or broadcast
diffusion.
Live television contribution or distribution is possible for all
network users who own a MENOS TV terminal (SIT-TV). These
terminals are equipped with DVB-S2 modems that allow the
transmission or the reception of high speed signals to and
from the hub of the MENOS network.
At transmission time, the system will automatically configure
the MENOS hub and the equipment at the uplink station. The
transmission starts when the video source is turned on. The
television signal is first transmitted from the uplink station
to the MENOS hub. In the hub the content is multiplexed
with other MENOS services in a single broadband signal that
is distributed from the hub to all stations in the network.
Authorized stations can receive the signal by manually joining
the session on their own web-based user interface. This action
will configure the receive equipment automatically.
All MENOS stations are equipped with broadband data
connectivity and Voice over IP channels, so two-way
communication is possible at any time during the TV
transmission. This communication is typically used for
technical coordination as well as interactivity with the content
generation (interviews).
Live TV sessions start with a user making a reservation. This
can be performed on a web based interface from any MENOS
terminal in the network. During the reservation process, the
user defines the TV session and the bandwidth required for
the uplink. If the live feed is only intended to specific stations
of the networks, the user can also indicate which set of
stations is allowed to receive the signal.
When television content needs to be contributed and
distributed in real-time, sufficient network bandwidth has
to be guaranteed throughout the transmission time and
throughout the entire communication chain. Typically, the
contribution or distribution of real-time standard definition
television requires 4 to 8 Megabits/sec. The MENOS system
automatically ensures that the capacity is reserved on the
contribution and distribution links in order to guarantee the
quality of the delivered content.

Technical description
Real-time television exchanges from 2 to 10 Megabits/sec are
implemented on the DVB-S2 subsystem of the MENOS network.
This subsystem is based on dedicated SCPC (Single Channel Per
Carrier) DVB-S2 return carriers from the terminals to the hub and
an MCPC (Multiple Channel Per Carrier) DVB-S2 forward carrier
from the hub to the terminals.
The Live TV infrastructure consists of a multicast streaming
server in the Hub (MMX-Hub) and a multicast streaming client
in the terminal (MMX-SIT). The MMX-SIT is associated with video
encoders/decoders at the customer site.
Video Encoder
The video encoders are stand-alone equipment in the terminal
that interfaces to the MMX.The video encoding is based on the
MPEG-2 standard. Both Main Profile @ Main Level as well as
4:2:2 Profile @ Main Level are supported. The latter is useful for
contribution applications. One video channel and two stereo
audio channels are supported. The encoder has an SDI interface.
MMX Streaming Server/Client Module
The MMX is the device that streams the video signal in IP format
over the MENOS network. Contribution signals are streamed in
unicast while distribution signals are streamed in multicast. The
multicast session information is then periodically announced
to the receivers. The receivers can then decide to join or not the
session.
Interface to Reservation System
The Reservation System (MRS) is used by the MENOS users in order
to book the sessions. This reservation server guarantees that once
a session for Live TV has been booked, the bandwidth required
for the time of the session is committed. The reservation server
therefore avoids any capacity overbooking. Once the session has
been booked, the information is sent to the MMX.
Interface to Archive Subsystem
During the reservation process it is also possible to indicate
whether the content should be archived. If the user determines
that archiving is required, the content is then directed by the MMX
in the Hub to the archive as well. Metadata associated with the
session/content also is sent to the archive by the MMX.
Interface to Multimedia VPN
(conditional access) subsystem
During the reservation process it is possible to indicate which
set of receivers are allowed to receive content. The signaling
subsystem then indicates to the MMX in the Hub to encrypt the
content before multicasting the content to the authorized SITs.
Video Decoder
The video decoders are stand-alone equipments that interface to
the MMX. The video decoding is based on the MPEG-2 standard.
Both Main Profile @ Main Level as well as 4:2:2 Profile @ Main Level
are supported. One video channel and two stereo audio channels
are supported. The decoder decodes the A/V stream and plays out
the stream on the SDI interface.

Applications
Real-time Radio Exchange
MENOS is a very flexible and efficient platform for the
satellite contribution and distribution of live radio signals in
professional broadcast networks.
Radio content often originates at regional sites. This content is
typically digitized and compressed at 48 Kilobits/sec per stereo
channel. The captured content is then sent or contributed to
a central location, from where the content can be distributed
to a number of national or regional broadcast centers. Content
contribution is typically a point-to-point unicast transmission
while content distribution is generally a point-to-multipoint
multicast or broadcast diffusion.
Live Radio contribution or distribution is possible for all
network users who own a MENOS Radio terminal (SIT-Radio).
These terminals are equipped with a satellite broadband
access modem that allows the transmission and the reception
of the compressed radio signal to and from the hub of the
MENOS network.
At transmission time, the system will automatically configure
the MENOS hub and the equipment at the uplink station.
The transmission starts when the audio source is turned on.
The radio signal is first transmitted from the uplink station to
the MENOS hub. In the hub the content is multiplexed with
other MENOS services in a single broadband signal that is
distributed to all stations in the network. Authorized stations
can receive the signal by manually joining the session on their
own web-based user interface. This action will configure the
receive equipment automatically.
All MENOS stations are equipped with broadband data
connectivity and Voice over IP channels, so two-way
communication is possible at any time during the Radio
transmission. This communication is typically used for
technical coordination as well as interactivity with the content
generation (interviews).
Live Radio sessions start with a user making a reservation. This
can be performed on a web based interface from any MENOS
terminal in the network. During the reservation process, the
user defines the Radio session and the bandwidth required
for the uplink. If the live feed is only intended to specific
stations of the networks, the user can also indicate which set
of stations is allowed to receive the signal.
When radio content needs to be contributed and distributed
in real-time, sufficient network bandwidth has to be
guaranteed throughout the transmission time and throughout
the entire communication chain. Typically, the contribution
or distribution of real-time professional quality radio signals
encapsulated in IP format requires 80 Kilobits/sec. The
MENOS system automatically ensures that the capacity is
reserved on the contribution and distribution links in order to
guarantee the quality of the delivered content.

MENOS TV Satellite Interactive Terminal (SIT) V1.1
Description
The MENOS TV SIT is one of the terminal types that can be used
within the MENOS satellite network environment. It is intended for
network members who need to exchange or distribute professional
television content with remote sites in a fast, reliable and efficient
way. The TV Terminal also provides high-speed Internet, VPN and
VoIP services independently of the availability of terrestrial links.
The core of the TV SIT is the Multimedia Exchange Unit (MMX),
which processes both live video signals and video files.
The MMX of the SIT exchanges video content with the MMX of the
MENOS hub for:
• Live TV contribution/distribution (reserved channel)
• File transfer (reserved channel or best effort)
• Store and forward: short time storage in the SIT or long term
archiving in the HUB
These exchange sessions are synchronized and activated
automatically by the hub’s Multimedia Reservation Server (MRS).
The TV SIT is connected to the MENOS hub via two satellite
subsystems: a MF-TDMA (Multiple Frequency and Time Division
Multiple Access) broadband subsystem for data and voice
communication, and a RAMA (Reservation Access Multiple Access)
subsystem for video and fast file transfers.
VoIP collaboration channels:
The VoIP collaboration channels enable cost-effective SIT to SIT voice
communication and multi-party conferences for daily operations,
while consuming very little satellite bandwidth. The embedded
Quality of Service (QoS) features ensure high quality VoIP.

Television Contribution and Distribution:
The MENOS TV SIT can be used to contribute digital master video
content from a remote station to the MENOS hub where it is stored
in a central repository for distribution or archiving. The TV SIT can
also be used to receive and store local content distributed from
the hub’s repository to the remote stations. The store and forward
capability allows the contributor/distributor to use low bandwidth
channels or to schedule the exchange of the TV content at a time
when the load of the network is lower, thereby saving on the cost
of transmission. The content can be digitally secured to limit access
to specified MENOS stations.

IP Satellite Interactive Terminal (SIT) V1.1
DESCRIPTION
The MENOS IP SIT is one of the terminal types that can be used
within the MENOS satellite network environment. It is intended
to network members and organizations requiring high-speed
Internet access or telephony services independently of the
availability of terrestrial links.
The MENOS IP SIT provides IP, VoIP and VPN connectivity.
The MENOS concept starts with the end-users in mind.
The terminals require little maintenance, are easy to install and
operate and are configured for specific applications while being
made of common building blocks using standardized technologies.
APPLICATIONS
IP access services:
As an integrated satellite IP access platform, the MENOS IP SIT
provides an ‘always-on’ high-bandwidth Intranet and Internet
connection, both for unicast and multicast traffic. The TCP
acceleration services, HTTP prefetching and caching allow for a
seamless broadband internet experience.
• Integrated encryption on all sessions and data
• Fully integrated VoIP services
• Quality of Service (QoS) implementation
- Support of four dynamic QoS traffic classes
- Support of Constant bit rate allocation reservations
• Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics
• Remote software upgradeable

Application notes
• MENOS applications – Broadband access
• MENOS applications – Real-time Radio exchange
• MENOS applications – Real time TV exchange
VPN:
Professional users have the ability to create Virtual Private
Network (VPN) connections among SITs to allow secured
access for exchanging private data. The VPNs are implemented
by the tunnel mode IPSec Internet standard, encrypting and
authenticating the entire IP packet contents for maximal security.
VoIP collaboration channels:
The Voice over IP (VoIP) collaboration channels enable costeffective SIT to SIT voice communication and multi-party
conferences for daily operations, while consuming very little
satellite bandwidth. The embedded Quality of Service (QoS)
features of the SIT ensure that VoIP traffic is prioritized over
IP access traffic. As such, optimal voice quality can be assured
during phone conversations or conference calls.
The terminal is equipped with an Analogue Telephone Adapter
(ATA) that is fully integrated into the VOIP sub-system.
