(54) Title (EN): A METHOD FOR REDUCING INTERFERENCE IN A SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK
(54) Title (FR): PROCÉDÉ POUR RÉDUIRE LE BROUILLAGE DANS UN RÉSEAU DE COMMUNICATION PAR SATELLITE

(57) Abstract:
(EN): The present invention provides a method for reducing interference to transmissions, occurring due to other transmissions sent from/to neighboring satellites using same frequencies and/or interference that occur due to other communications transmitted along different satellite' s beams using the same frequencies, wherein the method comprises the step of replacing full dummy frames that should be transmitted in a TDM continuous satellite forward channel, by dummy frames' headers with or without a pilot sequence. Also, the dummy frames' headers and the pilot sequence if available, may be transmitted at a reduced power.
(FR): La présente invention concerne un procédé pour réduire le brouillage au niveau de transmissions, se produisant en raison d'autres transmissions envoyées à partir/à destination de satellites voisins à l'aide de fréquences identiques et/ou un brouillage qui se produit en raison d'autres communications transmises le long de différents faisceaux de satellite à l'aide des fréquences identiques, le procédé comprenant l'étape consistant à remplacer des trames factices entières qui doivent être transmises dans un canal de transfert par satellite continu TDM, par des en-têtes de trames factices avec ou sans séquence pilote. Également, les en-têtes des trames factices et la séquence pilote, si disponible, peuvent être transmis à une puissance réduite.
