This paper presents the three different platforms developed within the frame of the SATSIX European project and shows live trials description and results. To prepare final experimentations on the SATSIX platform (Q3 2008), satellite emulation test bed is used to validate and to show performance evaluations of several features. The major achievement of the project is the validation of the first end to end IPv6 DVB-RCS systems. Moreover, various innovative techniques are demonstrated, either in the network (mobility, QoS) and access (ULE, regenerative payload) areas. These techniques will reduce the costs of future satellite systems and bring value added services. Different IPv6 applications are used to handle the corporate, collective and residential scenarios. Finally, inter-connection test between WiMAX and DVB-RCS in IPv6 is also covered.
