Resource Management in Hybrid DVB-RCS and WiFi Networks
Satellite networks are an attractive solution to provide broadband communication services anytime, anywhere with quality of service support. The aim of this paper is to study the integration of GEO satellite networks, DVB-RCS-based, with WiFi networks. This is particularly important in emergency scenarios where reliable satellite networks could be integrated with WiFi systems for local mobility support. In this paper, a combined-dynamic resource management scheme, CRA & A/VBDC, is investigated for the satellite segment to support VoIP and FTP elephant connections.
