The tree algorithm, a new basic protocol for accessing a satellite channel by a large number of independent users, is considered. Previous multi-accessing techniques suffered from long delays, low throughput and/or congestion instabilities. The ALOHA algorithm, for example, when applied to the Poisson source model, has a maximum throughput of .37 packets/slot and is unstable. The tree protocol, under similar conditions, is stable, has a maximum average throughput of .43 and has respectable… CONTINUE READING
