On TCP performance over asymmetric satellite links with real-time constraints


Real-time transmission over asymmetric satellite IP links is challenging, since satellite systems commonly exhibit long propagation delays, while bandwidth asymmetry often enforces a variable and infrequent rate of acknowledgment packets (ACKs) across the upstream channel with several undesirable implications. In this context, we formulate an analytical… (More)
