Removal of Packet Identifier (PID) 509 from EUMETCast Basic Service

On 13 December, PID 509 will be removed from EUMETCast Basic Service.

Thursday, 06 December 2018

Each service available on EUMETCast is assigned a corresponding multicast channel and Packet Identifier (PID).

After the termination of the EUMETCast-Americas Service, there is no longer a need for PID 509.

In an effort to reduce the number of used PIDs on the Basic Service, the channels currently active on PID 509 will be moved to different PIDs on 13/12/2018, as detailed in the table below:

Channel New PID Old multicast address New multicast address
SAF-Americas 500
TPC-3 301

No changes are required on user side since the multicast IP addresses are already in use and the channel names remain the same.
