The current signalling framework for Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) systems is based on MPEG-2 encoded Program Specific Information and System Information (PSI/SI) Tables that rely on the Transport Stream (TS). It is expected that in time, this architecture will be replaced by one based on the Generic Stream Encapsulation (GSE) protocol, paving the way for the convergence of DVB-S2 broadcast transmission networks and IP infrastructure. A new lightweight Generic Stream Signalling Transport Protocol (GSSTP) is presented in this paper, which efficiently facilitates the filtering of PSI/SI Tables in a GSE-only transmission system.
