Conference paper

Satellite platforms that already provide broadband access for Internet/Intranet (IPv4) and PSTN/ ISDN terrestrial networks are evolving towards the convergence with other network access technologies as WiFi and WiMax searching for mobility, QoS and IPv6 protocol evolution. This paper presents the benefits of the Next Generation Broadband Satellite Multimedia Systems and Network architecture future enhancements in the frame of EC-funded IST FP6 SATSIX (Satellitebased communications systems within IPv6) project.
