5.625 Gbps bidirectional laser communication at 1064 nm has been demonstrated on a repeatable basis between a Tesat coherent laser communication terminal with a 6.5 cm diameter ground aperture mounted inside the European Space Agency Optical Ground Station dome at Izana, Tenerife and a similar space based terminal (12.4 cm diameter aperture) on the Near(More)
Current in-kernel disk schedulers provide efficient means to optimize the order (and minimize disk seeks) of issued, in-queue I/O requests. However, they fail to optimize sequential multi-file operations, like traversing a large file tree, because only requests from one file are available in the scheduling queue at a time. We have therefore investigated a(More)
The transport of streaming media data over TCP is hindered by TCP's probing behavior that results in the rapid reduction and slow recovery of the packet rates. On the other side, UDP has been criticized for being unfair against TCP connections, and it is therefore often blocked out in the access networks. In this paper, we try to benefit from a combined(More)
The existing Linux disk schedulers are in general efficient, but we have identified two scenarios where we have observed a non-optimal behavior. The first is when an application requires a fixed bandwidth, and the second is when an operation performs a file tree traversal. In this paper, we address both these scenarios and propose solutions which both(More)
Today, major newspapers and TV stations make live and on-demand audio/video content available, video-on-demand services are becoming common and even personal media are frequently uploaded to streaming sites. The discussion about the best transport protocol for streaming has been going on for years. Currently, HTTP-streaming is usual although the transport(More)
