Techniques and applications
The chapter highlights techniques to simulate the behavior of real-time and non-real­ time satellite systems and clarifies possible application fields and motivations, and underlines some traffic models suited to simulate communication systems. Expand
Static and dynamic resource allocation in a multiservice satellite network with fading
A control architecture for resource allocation in satellite networks is proposed, along with the specification of performance indexes and control strategies, based on the Italsat satellite national coverage payload characteristics. Expand
Decentralized optimal control of Markov chains with a common past information set
Decentralized dynamic (closed-loop) optimal control strategies are sought for a class of finite state Markov decision processes, characterized by the sharing of a common past after k steps of delay.Expand
Small satellites and CubeSats: Survey of structures, architectures, and protocols
The space environment is still challenging but is becoming more and more attractive for an increasing number of entities and one widely used type of small satellite is the CubeSat, whose different aspects are surveyed in the following: mission goals, hardware subsystems and components, possible network topologies, channel models, and suitable communication protocols.

Cutting the energy bills of Internet Service Providers and telecoms through power management: An impact analysis
The main goal of this work is to quantitatively evaluate the potential energy savings from applying energy-efficient techniques, while examining the trade-off between network performance and the achieved energy savings. Expand
Green Networking With Packet Processing Engines: Modeling and Optimization
This work proposes an analytical model to accurately represent the impact of green network technologies (i.e., low power idle and adaptive rate) on network- and energy-aware performance indexes and proposes a constrained optimization policy, which seeks the best tradeoff between power consumption and packet latency times.
