    The Internet has become an important part of day to day activities. There is hardly a day without using Internet, such as reading Emails and articles as well as enjoying music and video. Thus, it is very important for the Internet to be provided to anyone anywhere. Terrestrial network has been the underlying infrastructure for the Internet. However, terrestrial network by itself cannot always sati... View full abstract»

    We propose modifications in the TCP-Friendly Rate Control (TFRC) congestion control mechanism from the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) intended for use with real-time traffic, which are aimed at improving its performance for long delay (primarily satellite) links. Firstly, we propose an algorithm to optimise the number of feedback messages per round trip time (RTT) rather than use the ... View full abstract»

  • Cross-layer optimization of TCP throughput for DVB-S2 links

    Publication Year: 2008, Page(s):13 - 17
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (154 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper presents a methodology to optimize the use of the forward link DVB-S2 capacity. Our interest is optimizing the switching Eb/N0 thresholds for adaptive coding and modulation selection in DVB-S2 in order to maximize the TCP goodput according to a cross-layer design approach.

    This paper presents a measurement campaign conducted inside a Boeing 737-400 aircraft for the development of in-cabin wireless networks. The measurements were conducted in three different frequency bands in order to provide various services. It was found that the path loss factor along the aircraft corridor varies between 2.1 and 2.3 depending on frequency. In respect the path loss factor ranges b... View full abstract»

    This paper is aimed at characterization of multipath propagation in land mobile satellite scenarios. Of particular interest is the average multipath power coming from scattering of electromagnetic waves from rough building surface. Method of physical optics was implemented to model scattering from rough building facades. The results in terms of time series of the received power are used to obtain ... View full abstract»

    By applying the Synthetic Storm Technique to the large collection of rain rate time series measured at Spino dpsilaAdda, in 8 years of continuous observation (1993-2000), we have simulated 1120 time series of simultaneous attenuation and phase delay due to rain in a 20deg slant path at 8.4 and 32 GHz. The relationship between phase delay and attenuation exceeded with the same probability is given ... View full abstract»

    To develop and test real time fade mitigation techniques control algorithms, propagation time series are needed. An alternative to using real data collected from propagation experiments is to generate typical fading time series making use of climatological characteristics as well as geometrical and radio-electrical parameters of the link. The aim of the study presented in this paper is to validate... View full abstract»

    The BSM (broadband satellite multimedia) architecture is characterized by the separation between common satellite-independent (SI) protocol layers and alternative lower Satellite-Dependent (SD) layers, which are connected through the satellite independent service access point (SI-SAP). In general the SI-SAP offers an agnostic interface to whichever SD layer is used. So QoS provision in the BSM arc... View full abstract»
