SCPC

Short for single channel per carrier, a VSAT satellite transmission system that uses a separate carrier for each of its channels. SCPC is used for broadcast data and full-duplex audio/video communications. In an SCPC system, transmissions are sent to the satellite continuously on a single satellite carrier. The satellite signal is received at a single location, in the case of a point-to-point system, or at many locations in a broadcast system, providing hubless connectivity among multiple sites.

Contrast SCPC with frequency division multiplexing, a technology that combines multiple channels on a single carrier.
