Network providers are confronted with the optimisation or extension of existing networks. This leads to new challenges for simulation-based network dimensioning. The first challenge is the realistic simulation of the existing network, where topology information and traffic measurements have to be considered. The second challenge is to predict how changes of(More)
In this paper we provide an estimation of the net satellite capacity needed to reliably offer In-Flight Internet services to aircraft flying in the North-Atlantic region. For this work we took into account the expected dynamic usage of AirCom (Aeronautical Communications) Internet services, the average aircraft’ cabin configurations and the characteristics(More)
Satellite based Air Traffic Management (ATM) and In-Flight Internet (IFI) services surely are among the most important ones that will be offered to airlines in the long term. In the design of any communication and security system, high performance must be paid for with high system costs. It is then clearly important, under the business case and technical(More)
The paper discusses various system aspects of future aeronautical services via satellite. Both, commercial aeronautical broadband satellite communications (AirCom) for passengers and air traffic management (ATM) are considered. An integrated global system design approach is presented, and key R&D issues along this path are discussed. Some focus is laid on(More)
In the last few years, IP has moved towards resource reservation, with the task to guarantee in the future Quality of Service (QoS). This has led to flow admission control algorithms based on the negotiation of standardised traffic parameters. QoS can be guaranteed in any network, a priori from the used technology, only if the used admission control(More)
The paper discusses various system aspects of commercial aeronautical broadband satellite communications (AirCom). An integrated global system design approach is presented, and key R&D issues along this path are discussed. Some focus is laid on geographic satellite coverage and constellation alternatives. A capacity dimensioning method for global(More)
