The exponential growth of the Internet, the heterogeneity of networks, and the need for QoS maintenance have urged researchers to develop ideas for managing network scalability and end-to-end QoS assurance. In this article, an IP IntServ architecture in the satellite access network is combined with a scalable IP DiffServ-like architecture in the terrestrial core network. The proposed architecture aims at guaranteeing fine-grained bandwidth control in the satellite access network and stateless scalability in the core network, by exploiting per-aggregate traffic flow control, typical of the aggregate RSVP protocol, and stateless service assurance, typical of the SCORE approach.
