Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation in a TDMA System
This satellite system provides integrated voice and digital data communication services for corporations via a geosynchronous satellite. IBM was contracted to build the Satellite Communications Controller (SCC) for the earth stations. The SCC provides signal conversion, traffic switching, data multiplexing and TDMA control for the system. Each SCC also determines its satellite bandwidth requirement and transmits this requirement to a special SCC callad the reference SCC. The reference computes bandwidth allocations for all SCCs using the received requirements and periodically transmits these allocations to all SCCs.
