This article surveys the alternative fade mitigation techniques for satellite communication systems operating at Ku, Ka and V frequency bands. The specific phenomena influencing the propagation of radiowaves on Earth-space links are also overviewed. Emphasis is placed on modeling, experimental work carried out in the past, and practical implementations related to each mitigation technique. View full abstract»

Multicasting is an efficient communication mechanism for group-oriented applications such as videoconferencing, broadcasting stock quotes, interactive group games, and video on demand. The lack of security obstructs a large deployment of this efficient communication model. This limitation motivated a host of research works that have addressed the many issues relating to securing the multicast, suc... View full abstract»
Network performance evaluation using frame size and quality traces of single-layer and two-layer video: A tutorialPublication Year: 2004, Page(s):58 - 78
Cited by: Papers (179)
Video traffic is widely expected to account for a large portion of the traffic in future wireline and wireless networks, as multimedia applications are becoming increasingly popular. Consequently, the performance evaluation of networking architectures, protocols, and mechanisms for video traffic becomes increasingly important. Video traces, which give the sizes, deadlines, and qualities of the ind... View full abstract»
