IP STL : A BroadCaster's Guide

Planning and deploying strategies

Studio-to-Transmitter Links (STLs) are critical for broadcasters. The process of delivering audio and/or video data from the station to the transmit tower has traditionally been accomplished using uni-directional microwave. However, over the last 10 years, this legacy form of STL has been increasingly replaced by wireless links utilizing Internet Protocol (IP). These IP STLs represent an exciting alternative for savvy broadcasters to exploit.


As an established wireless expert, DoubleRadius, Inc. has been designing wireless networks since 2001 and engineering IP STLs since 2007. Over the years, we’ve gained invaluable experience working with a host of broadcasters around the country. These critical insights have now been gathered here for you in our IP STL : A Broadcaster’s Guide, which outlines ways to effectively set up and operate an IP STL.
