Early detection and rejection probability-based congestion control scheme for deep space networks

2016-02-10T09:50:16+00:00

SummaryDeep Space Networks (DSNs) are a class of DTNs. In such networks, owing to limited radio range and node mobility, end-to-end paths between source and destination nodes are not available. Messages are relayed by store-and-forward strategy and may be buffered for long periods before being forwarded to the next hop. Therefore, the buffer of message [...]

Satellite interference evaluation: joint effect of modeling earth station locations and earth station antenna sidelobe gains as random variables

2016-02-10T09:50:49+00:00

SUMMARY When several satellite communication systems share the same frequency band, each system operates under the aggregate interference generated by the others. In this interfering environment, interference calculation procedures in which worst-case situations and simplifying assumptions are considered are commonly used. Given that the geostationary satellite orbit and the frequency spectrum are limited resources, it [...]

QoS provisioning by power control for video communication via satellite links

2016-02-10T09:51:00+00:00

SUMMARY Video transmissions over satellite links are sensitive to signal fades because of rain, especially in the tropics. We performed a video-streaming experiment over a satellite link for 24 days distributed over 1 year to investigate the effects of rain fade. Based on the measurements, models for the relationships between rainfall rate, power level, packet loss, and [...]

In the context of spaceflight, a satellite is an artificial object which has been intentionally placed into orbit. Such objects are sometimes called artificial satellites to distinguish them from natural satellites such as the Moon. The world’s first artificial satellite, the Sputnik 1, was launched by the Soviet Union in 1957. Since then, thousands of [...]

Rain granularity effects on bandwidth demand for faded DVB-RCS systems

2016-02-10T09:51:30+00:00

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 [...]

Intelsat Napa Teleport in Epicenter of 6.0 Earthquake [Industry update]

2016-02-10T09:51:40+00:00

The earthquake lies within a 70-km-wide (44 miles) set of major faults of the San Andreas Fault system that forms the boundary between the Pacific and North American tectonic plates. The persistent northwestward movement of the Pacific plate relative to North America primarily causes right-lateral slip across the major faults, but also causes deformation between [...]

Dynamic satellite system QoS architecture integrated with IP Multimedia Subsystem core network

2016-02-10T09:52:00+00:00

SUMMARY Convergence is one of the most important challenges for Next Generation Networks (NGN). This includes service convergence as well as fixed-mobile convergence. The integration of satellite telecommunication system into NGN is a key to increasing the coverage of future networks and opening satellite access networks to a wider range of terrestrial solutions. Digital Video [...]
