Satellite based broadband networks are gaining importance due to their distance insensitivity and high bandwidth availability. Although it is possible to transmit Internet traffic through satellite network, it has been observed that many of the IP related protocols (especially transmission control protocol) do not perform well in the satellite environment due to the high latency and variable round trip time (RTT) offered by the satellite network. Some of the researchers have suggested using… CONTINUE READING
