The paper presents a novel approach for dynamic bandwidth allocation (DBA) in GEO satellite networks based on adaptive predictive control. In the proposed DBA scheme each satellite gateway (SG) uses an adaptive predictor to forecast the future input traffic flow along with a predictive bandwidth controller to generate a bandwidth request to the network control center (NCC) according to a receding-horizon policy, via solution of an optimal control problem. A multi-service traffic scenario is considered with a careful eye to guarantee differentiated quality of service requirements. Simulation experiments demonstrate that the DBA technique proposed in this work outperforms fixed allocation as well as existing DBA methods.
