Executive Summary

This paper investigates the performance of time interleaving in DVB-T2 in the context of mobile reception. By means of time interleaving it is possible to provide time diversity and improve the robustness of the transmitted information in mobile environments. DVB-T2 implements a highly flexible time interleaving that allows different trade-offs in terms of time diversity, latency and power saving. DVB-T2 also includes the possibility to particularize the transmission parameters on a service basis by means of multiple physical layer pipes. This way, it is possible to accommodate different use cases: fixed, portable and mobile, in the same frequency channel. This paper evaluates the time interleaving capabilities of DVB-T2 by means of physical layer simulations.
