Resource Management in Satellite Communication Systems: Heuristic Schemes and Algorithms

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The high cost of frequency bandwidth in satellite communication emphasizes the need for good algorithms to cope with the resource allocation problem. In systems using DVB-S2 links, the optimization of resource allocation may be related to the classical multi-knapsack problem. Resource management should be carried out according to the requests of subscribers, their priority levels, and assured bandwidths. A satisfaction measure is defined to estimate the allocation processes. Heuristic algorithms together with some innovative scaling schemes are presented and compared using Monte Carlo simulation based on a traffic model introduced here.
