Title

Packet Satellite Multiple Access: Models and Measurements

Abstract

This paper reports on a series of channel access measurements recently carried out on SATNET, an experimental packet satellite network, to evaluate and compare the performance of F-TDMA, R-TDMA and S-ALOHA channel access protocols. After a brief description of the protocols, the paper introduces objectives, methods and tools of the measurement activity; presents a selection of the most representative measurements; and derives general performance trends and comparisons among the three protocols.
