Design and Performance Evaluation of a Packet-Switching Satellite Emulator
The increasing interest for the satellite technology as suitable means for transporting multimedia applications has fostered several research investigations aimed at identifying proper algorithm tunings and exploring the performance of communication protocols in general. To this end, the support of analysis and research tools is of primary importance to assess performance of data communication and, hence, to provide the satellite system designers with proper indications suited to develop effective satellite networks.
From this standpoint, a satellite emulation tool is presented, showing the features it provides and a large set of applications in which it might be employed to asses the performance of data communication.
