Working Party 4B (WP 4B) - Systems, air interfaces, performance and availability objectives for the fixed-satellite service (FSS), broadcasting-
satellite service (BSS) and mobile-satellite service (MSS), including IP-based applications and satellite news gathering (SNG)
Working Party 4B carries out studies on performance, availability, air interfaces and earth-station equipment of satellite systems in the FSS, BSS and MSS. This group has paid particular attention to the studies of Internet Protocol (IP)-related system aspects and performance and has developed new and revised Recommendations and Reports on IP over satellite to meet the growing need for satellite links to carry IP traffic. This
