Internet over satellite is an emerging facet of communications enabling users to have access to the Internet over high speed satellite links. However, new requirements should be satisfied by the involved protocols in order to fully utilize the available network resources. This paper discusses the possible mitigations that can be applied to the transmission control protocol over satellite links. Furthermore, we study the performance of the TCP enhancements we implemented in a simulated satellite environment.
