  title={A bandwidth allocation strategy for multimedia traffic in a satellite network},
  author={Raffaele Bolla and Franco Davoli and Mario Marchese},
The paper proposes a bandwidth allocation scheme adapted for satellite networks. The traffic considered is divided into two categories: guaranteed traffic and nonguaranteed best-effort traffic. The control scheme is aimed at keeping the call blocking probability of the guaranteed traffic below a given threshold and at minimising the packet discarding probability of the best-effort portion in case of degradation of the satellite channel. In that way a minimum grade of service should be… CONTINUE READING
