Gain the knowledge needed to execute end-to-end performance analysis over satellite links and networks, evaluate throughput and capacity over satellite systems, and understand IP/ATM over SATCOM issues and limitations with this in-depth, practical resource. The book examines current and future land mobile satellite (LMS) communication systems, and the techniques necessary to support reliable and efficient communication. You get extensive coverage of future information services and networking via IP and IP over ATM. You learn how to make efficient use of available satellite communication resources through greater integration of the satellite into the overall network. Two basic operational scenarios are considered: the satellite as a relay and the satellite switch in the sky. From an introduction of LMS and the role of LMS in IMT-2000, to an examination of satellite IP/ATM network architectures and medium access control (MAC) layer issues and proposals, the book covers a wide range of critical topics to help you optimize system performance. Referenced with more than 400 equations and 100 illustrations.
