When a wireless link forms a part of a network, the rate of packet loss due to link noise may be considerably higher than observed in a modern terrestrial network. This paper studies TCP performance over a range of link environments and highlights the advantage of recent modifications to TCP (e.g. SACK, New-Reno) for wireless communications. It also(More)
Satellite based Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB-S) allows the same low cost satellite dish to receive both television programs and Internet traffic. The satellite system is used to construct a high-speed simplex distribution system, while the return path, needed for the Internet service will be provided using a low speed terrestrial network. The bandwidth(More)
