Abstract

Satellite networks are going to play an important role in the global information infrastructure. Satellites can be used to provide Internet services to fixed users and to mobile users. However, recent measurements show that the satellite link efficiency is only about 30%. In order to improve the performance of Internet over satellite, a new protocol called Receiver Window Backpressure Protocol (RWBP) is proposed. RWBP uses per-flow queuing, round robin scheduling and receiver window backpressure for congestion management. Simulation results show that RWBP can maintain high utilization of the satellite link and improve fairness among the competing connections.
