The use of satellite communication techniques to provide integrated data network and point-to-point and conference speech services is discussed. The concept of a General Purpose Packet Satellite Network (GPSN) is introduced in terms of its requirements, and consideration is given to techniques that satisfy these requirements. The class of Priority Oriented Demand Assignment (PODA) algorithms is defined and compared with other packet-oriented demand assignment algorithms. PODA is shown to be… CONTINUE READING
