The criterion of equal integrated quality: An improved method of planning DBS systems
A new technique for use in international planning of satellite broadcasting is proposed. The planning procedure would use this technique to provide an equal weighted mean quality for all circuits, as opposed to conventional techniques which would equalise the minimum quality (usually that exceeded for all but a given small percentage of the time). As a consequence there is a different trade-off between the necessary transmit power on board the satellite and the outage time. This compromise leads to more equitable access to spectrum especially for areas where rain attenuation is high.
