Validation of a QoS architecture for DVB/RCS satellite networks via a hardware demonstration platform

Abstract : Full integration of satellite technology in future terrestrial infrastructures requires support for high-quality broadband bi-directional communications. Research efforts in the field of satellite communications are currently oriented in the study of QoS-aware solutions for DVB-S and DVB-RCS which allowed seamless deployment in the Internet. In this paper, the QoS architecture designed in the framework of the SATIP6 project, sponsored within the 5th EU Research Programme Framework, is presented, along with the implemented demonstrator and the obtained results. The QoS architecture is organized into two main modules, the Traffic Control and Access Control modules, whose aims are (i) to provide for differentiated service of conveyed IP flows and (ii) to achieve efficient utilization of uplink bandwidth respectively. Experimental results obtained through the developed hardware demonstration platform are reported and discussed to assess the effectiveness of the designed solution in terms of both service differentiation and efficient utilization of satellite resources.
