Where access by terrestrial fibre is not commercially attractive, the use of satellites for the provision of services to remote and less developed regions is recognised as efficient and economical. The EC COST 253 Action was set up to study, define, model and simulate the inter-connection of local area networks through non-geostationary satellites in order to provide globally efficient interactive communication services. Service Efficient Network Interconnection via Satellite provides the results of research activities conducted within the COST 253 framework gathered from European satellite communications experts. Reviews source and traffic models important for the design of network control algorithms

  • Covers transmission aspects including modulation and coding schemes, Doppler frequency shift correction and interference modelling

  • Discusses different network issues including routing strategies taking into account traffic characteristics and geographic variation in traffic intensity, reliability issues, multicast over satellite, and recent development in security aspects of mobile networks and their applications in satellite networks

  • Discusses the technical challenges involved in the implementation of TCP/IP over satellite and the on-going development in mobile IP

  • Evaluates different simulation tools for the characterisation of satellite networks and presents the simulation results for networking performance
      By offering a wealth of material relating to satellite communication systems technologies, Service Efficient Network Interconnection via Satellite will be of tremendous value to researchers, academics and those working within industry.
