In satellite telecommunication, a downlink is the link from a satellite down to one or more ground stations or receivers.
Communication from a spacecraft to its ground control station. The opposite of uplink.
A data link from a satellite or other spacecraft to a terrestrial terminal.
Signal sent from a communications satellite to the earth satellite Dual Path Ability to transmit two signals to a satellite at the same time.
A receiving dish. This can be a passive receiving antenna for a single household or the antenna for the head-end of a cable system.
The satellite to earth half of a 2 way telecommunications satellite link. Often used to describe the recieve dish end of the link.
to receive a signal from the satellite. These are the dishes ETV's users have on site.
Term used to describe the retransmitting of signals from a satellite back to Earth.
Downlink is the term describing the transmission from the satellite to earth. (See also Uplink.)
Simply enough, the downlink is the signal that is sent from the satellite orbiting the earth to the satellite dish. In the case of DBS, the downlink is actually received at a broadcasting center and then redirected to your personal satellite. Currently the downlink can also contain a wireless Internet signal.
The retransmission of a signal from a satellite transponder down to the earth stations.
An earth station that receives satellite signals.
is the connection made when a communications satellite relays a received signal to a receiving station back on Earth.
To receive from a satellite; also, the dish used for reception.
the path, or link, from the satellite to earth stations which receive its signals. The term is frequently applied to a parabolic antenna that receives signals from a satellite. It is often referred to as: a dish, a terminal, an earth station, or a TVRO (television receive only).
The radio signal transmitted from a spacecraft to Earth.
Technical term for data transmission from the network or from an (Internet) provider to the subscriber. The return channel, i.e. the reverse transmission direction, is referred to as an â€œuplinkâ€. With asymmetric transmission methods, normally data rates are higher in the downlink direction than in the uplink direction. With symmetric transmission the data rates are the same in both directions.
The portion of a satellite circuit extending from the satellite to an earth receive station.
Process of receiving from a satellite. Also the dish used for reception.
Earth station used to receive signals from satellite.
Transmissions from AP to client.
Describes the transmission of a satellite signal back to earth.
A radio link from a base station to a mobile terminal.
A transmission path for the communication of signals and data from a communications satellite or other space vehicle to the earth. DTK See Desired Track.
Transmission of radio frequency signals from a satellite to an earth station. A satellite dish that receives signals.
The part of a satellite system that includes the satellite itself, the receiving earth station, and the signal transmitted from the satellite to earth stations.
The receiving portion of a satellite circuit extending from the satellite to the Earth. Compare to Uplink.
The act of receiving signals from a satellite transponder to any earth station or earth terminal.
Signal sent from communications satellite to the Earth station — your satellite dish.
Communication link between a satellite and an earth station or ground-based receiver.
A transmission link carrying information from a satellite or spacecraft to earth. Typically down links carry telemetry, data and voice.
Technical term for data transmission in the direction from the network, the provider or the Internet provider to the subscriber. (The return channel is know as the uplink.)
a.k.a. Forward Link The connection from the network to the end-user communications device. In satellite communications, also refers to the connection from a satellite to a terrestrial receiver. See Also: Uplink, Forward Link, Reverse Link
