Broadband satellite communication networks, operating at Ka band and above, play a vital role in today’s worldwide telecommunication infrastructure. The problem, however, is that rain can be the most dominant impairment factor for radio propagation above 10 GHz. This paper studies bandwidth and time slot allocation problem for rain faded DVB-RCS satellite networks. We investigate how using finer rain granularity can improve bandwidth utilization in DVB-RCS return links.
