Broadband Satellite Communications For Internet Access

RRP $40.95

"This book is by far the most comprehensive and orderly treatment of the subject. It is the work of experts with a wealth of both theoretical and practical experience with the subject and its connecting disciplines. It is an integral work... concepts and notation are at the same consistent level throughout the book. Quality of Service (QoS) is an absolutely critical part of any telecommunication services. This work fills a gap in the literature of what possibilities there are for satellites in providing global Internet services." Excerpted from the Foreword by Raymond L. Pickholtz, The George Washington University
Broadband Satellite Communications for Internet Access is a systems engineering methodology for satellite communication networks. It discusses the implementation of Internet applications that involve network design issues usually addressed in standard organizations. Various protocols for IP- and ATM-based networks are examined and a comparative performance evaluation of different alternatives is described. This methodology can be applied to similar evaluations over any other transport medium.
This book, suitable as a teaching text as well as a reference, covers:
-Satellite networks: technology, history and broadband communication satellites planned and launched into service.
-Trends Analysis: satellite networks covering physical, MAC, IP, transport layer protocols with an emphasis on TCP enhancements to account for fading, errors, noise, Doppler shifts and nomadic behavior.
-Quality of Service (QoS): end-to-end QoS model, framework and architectures including IntServ, DiffServ and MPLS traffic engineering for satellite IP networks, application QoS mapping.
-Satellite IP: design and implementation, DiffServ based QoS performance models for TCP and UDP traffic for GEO and MEO configurations.
-Interactive Multimedia over Satellite: TDMA and CDMA based return channel protocol models and analysis for DVB-RCS networks.
-Satellite ATM: analysis of fundamental questions (e.g. buffer requirements, TCP/ATM, efficiency, fairness, and multiple access models).
-International Standards: definitions, processes and agreed objectives for satellite IP and satellite ATM networks-ITU-R, ITU-T, IETF, ETSI, ATM Forum.
Whether you're a researcher, systems engineer, or a telecommunications/network specialist, Broadband Satellite Communications for Internet Access provides a comprehensive perspective on satellite networks. It addresses the end-to-end protocol stack, satellite design principles, QoS methodologies and international standards for building satellite network systems for multimedia applications.

Broadband Telecommunications And Regional Development

RRP $370.99

Broadband is one of the most transformative technologies of the 21st century, yet our understanding of its regional impacts remains somewhat rudimentary. Not only are issues of broadband pricing and speed relevant in this context, but the overall quality of service for broadband can often dictate its impacts on regional development. This book illuminates the regional impacts of this pervasive and important technology.

The principle aim of this book is to deepen our understanding of broadband and its connections to regional development. First, it uses a geospatial lens to explore how the relationship between broadband and regional development influences access to technology platforms, dictates provision patterns, and facilitates the shrinkage of space and time in non-uniform and sometimes unexpected ways. Second, it book provides a comprehensive guide that details the strengths and weaknesses of publically available broadband data and their associated uncertainties, allowing regional development professionals and researchers to make more informed decisions regarding data use, analytical models and policy recommendations. Finally, this book is the first to detail the growing importance of broadband to digital innovation and entrepreneurship in regions.

This book will be of interest to regional development professionals and researchers in economics, public policy, geography, regional science and planning.

Ofdma Mobile Broadband Communications

RRP $4.00

Written by the pioneers of Flash-OFDM, arguably the first commercially developed OFDMA-based mobile broadband system in the world, this book teaches OFDMA from first principles, enabling readers to understand mobile broadband as a whole. The book examines the key requirements for data-centric mobile; how OFDMA fits well with data networks; why mobile broadband needs to be IP-based; and how to bridge communications theory to real-world air interface design and make a good system choice between performance and complexity. It also explores the future of wireless technologies beyond conventional cellular architecture. One of the key challenges faced by newcomers to this field is how to apply the wireless communications theory and principles to the real world and how to understand sophisticated commercial systems such as LTE. The authors use their firsthand experience to help graduate students, researchers and professionals working on 4G to bridge the gap between theory and practice.
