This paper discusses a Distributed Network Quality of Service (NQoS) provision approach in decentralized interactive DVB-T systems (IDVB-T), enabling for scalable and fault tolerant operation. The paper describes the design and overall architecture of a regenerative IDVB-T infrastructure, where network resource allocation and service classification processes are performed at local level within each intermediate distribution node (Cell Main Node CMN), setting the basis for a CMNto-CMN NQoS provision. Validity of the proposed approach is experimentally verified, and the test-results are compared against the aggregated and federated NQoS provision approaches, indicating similar performance but better scalability and fault-tolerant design.
