Aiming to exploit the capabilities of next generation terminals to receive and process several, partially overlapping beams of a multibeam satellite, we present a mathematical analysis and propose algorithms to provide enhanced and robust load-balancing to unequal load demands between beams. At the core of our mechanisms is a resource allocation problem that aims to minimize the time to deliver packets taking into account the load (traffic demands) per beam and channel conditions.

Key Quantitative Results

  • We provide numerical results for the case of a multibeam satellite covering Europe with 70 beams showing that our technique can increase the stable throughput by 30% or higher with respect to current techniques.
