Celandroni N., Secchi R. Suitability of DAMA and contention-based satellite access schemes for TCP traffic in mobile DVB-RCS. In: Ieee Transactions on Vehicular Technology, vol. 58 (4) pp. 1836 - 1845. IEEE, 2009.
The problem of optimizing access and bandwidth sharing among transmission control protocol (TCP) connections in the mobile digital video broadcasting return channel via satellite (DVB-RCS) is tackled in this paper. After sketching the general system architecture, we explicitly deal with the dynamic assignment of bandwidth to TCP connections on the return link, which is accomplished by a network control center (NCC) placed onboard the satellite. Mobile users access the satellite in multifrequency time-division multiple access (MF-TDMA), whereas they receive data from the NCC in time-division multiplexing (TDM). Two different techniques, based on deterministic and random access, are compared in terms of bandwidth usage and average completion time per connection, when the mobile user acts as both server and client. In the server case, to increase the TCP throughput, both packet-level forward error correction (FEC) on data sent by mobile users and a duplicated and delayed acknowledgment technique for TCP acknowledgment traffic from the NCC to the mobile users are applied. An analysis of the packet losses and a simulation campaign of file transfers by employing a realistic channel model has been carried out. The results of the analysis show the convenience of adopting a technique, in addition to the optimal data redundancy in different cases, such as the server or client role of users, their willingness to pay, the file size, and the environment type.
