    In this paper the author examines the potential role of satellite transmission in an ATM network from a global operator's perspective. The primary differences and challenges associated with satellite transmission of ATM versus wireline transmission are presented. The commercial drivers are outlined for the need for complementary satellite based adjunct to existing and future terrestrial wireline a... View full abstract»

    Two unique characteristics of geostationary satellite links impact the performance of ATM connections. These are satellite errors (which usually come in bursts) and long propagation delay. Many satellite links also have a limited bandwidth compared to terrestrial optical fibre links. This paper identifies important performance issues that should be considered when implementing ATM over satellite i... View full abstract»

    This paper investigates the use of currently available EUTELSAT satellite transmission systems as an immediate solution for the deployment of early ATM services. It describes the results of tests and trials of ATM transmissions on EUTELSAT satellites for purposes of validating the quality of satellite channels carrying ATM traffic View full abstract»

    It has been recognised that satellites can play a very important role in supporting B-ISDN services based on ATM technology. There have been several projects to exploit ATM over satellite for broadband services since 1992. These include the European RACE II CATALYST project which developed a satellite ATM demonstrator and the EPSRC project which studied the interconnection of Broadband ATM Islands...

    This paper summarises the results of a user interview programme of IT and telecommunications managers in major organisations. The purpose of the survey was to identify: current network topologies; views on potential applications, which will drive the development of their networks; views on and likely use of ATM; current and potential usage of satellite links, within possible ATM networks; and like...

    The Cadenza system was first presented as a candidate ATM switch-in-the-sky in 1994. At that time, the viability of the concept had already been demonstrated, but an operational system deriving from it was still only a pious hope-or perhaps a little more than that. Cadenza has now gone on to become the world's first ATM switch in the sky. Since the beginning of March this year, the Cadenza system ... View full abstract»

    COMSAT's new ATM satellite service employs advanced satellite interface technology to transport high quality ATM traffic in a bandwidth efficient way. In the life-cycle planning for these interface devices new features may soon be added that will enable processing of switched virtual circuits, extend the data compression feature for input rates up to 8 Mbit/s, add SNMP-based equipment control, and...

    VANTAGE (VSAT ATM Network Trials for Application Groups across Europe) is a part EC funded project that began in September 1995. The aim is to demonstrate the benefits of using satellites to convey messages in asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) to small communities of users at remote locations. This paper provides an insight into the work and, in particular, gives the results of a first trial which ... View full abstract»
