Dear SatLabs Subscriber,

The SatLabs members are making steady progress towards the implementation of SatLabs Version 2 certification level. First terminals testing will take place in the next few months.

In the meantime, two new terminals have been awarded the SatLabs Certificate of Compliance for successfully passing the SatLabs Qualification Program - Version 1. This certificate verifies they comply with the DVB-RCS standard and can interoperate with other DVB-RCS based satellite equipment.

Furthermore, as DVB-RCS gains more and more market momentum, we decided to take the opportunity of the IBC (International Broadcasting Convention) in Amsterdam to hold a SatLabs Symposium at ESA/ESTEC on September 11th. This will be a unique opportunity to listen to success stories built upon DVB-RCS and discuss on future developments.

Kind regards,

Your SatLabs Team
