Transport protocols for Internet-compatible satellite networks

  title={Transport protocols for Internet-compatible satellite networks},
  author={Thomas R. Henderson and Randy H. Katz},
  journal={IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications},
We addressthe question of how well end-to-end transport connectionsperform in a satellite environment composedof one or more satellitesin geostationaryorbit (GEO) or low-altitude earth orbit (LEO), in which the connectionmay traversea portion of the wired Internet. Wefirst summarize the various ways in which latency and asymmetry can impair the performance of the Internet’s Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), and discussextensionsto standard TCP that alleviate someof theseperformanceproblems… CONTINUE READING
