This paper presents a technique to monitor the performance of DVB-S/S2 transmission systems at the Link Layer (LL) level using the Unidirectional Lightweight Encapsulation (ULE) protocol. The technique is based on the use of extension headers and is validated for different traffic patterns. It has been designed to provide an Operation, Administration and Management (OAM) method for IP-based DVB-S/S2 systems using the MPEG-2 Transport Stream. Such methods can be used to identify edge-to-edge performance and connectivity issues in a layer 2 network.
