A novel Self-Similar Traffic Prediction Method Based on Wavelet Transform for Satellite Internet

A novel Self-Similar Traffic Prediction Method Based on Wavelet Transform for Satellite Internet

With service types and quantity growing, the self- similar degree will continuously increase. As a result, the self-similarity of traffic has the adverse effect on satellite communication system, aggravating congestion of the network nodes, as well as vibration and vibration delay. A large number of studies show that the main reason of the situations, such as high rate of buffer over- flow, lengthened transmission delay and the continuous increasingly periodic congestion, is the self-similarity of network traffic. The traffic self-similarity directly affects structure design, control mechanism, analy- sis methods and management measures of the next generation network communication system. Besides, packet loss rate rises along with the increase of the self-similarity degree, while the bandwidth utilization decreases.[5][6][7][8] Therefore, it is necessary to pre- dict the network traffic reasonably and accurately, in order to provide the prediction queue information to the scheduling star and reliable data for the cross- layer scheduling of satellite Internet.

end-to-end transmission, there is a propagation delay of more than 119 meters per second on an uplink and more than 240 metres per second for both an uplink and downlink. A two way end-to-end transmission path with communication protocol like TCP will make the same trip like the one way end-to-end transmission twice (Morelli and Petrone, 2011). This is due to the RTT of a signal transmitted. A requesting signal from the earth station needs to travel all the way to the geostationary satellite. Then from the satellite the requesting packet needs access the internet at for example one of Telstra’s base station on earth then travel all the way back to the satellite and finally back to its earth station. The one way transmission or broadcasting end has fewer issues to deal with as the delay is not noticeable to the users at the receiving end. Thus for basic internet applications such as browsing and checking your email, the satellite is a good option especially if you reside in rural Australia. In the case of TV broadcasting, the latency is nearly unnoticeable. However, using the internet for real-time application such as video conferencing, webcam communications, e-surgery and students taking certain exams in the rural area at the moment is quite impossible. This obstacle may cause lives for example; emergency cases of patients that needed immediate specific operations cannot be done locally via e-surgery. Students undertaking exams need to go to nearby towns where reliable internet is available. Interactive real time online gaming is not even remotely possible.

BusinessCom Internet via Satellite VIPER TES Traffic Engineering Server Introduction Brochure.

Increase backbone bandwidth utilization efficiency with guaranteed Quality of Service for the subscribers. When the Internet was first being created, there was no perceived need for a QoS mechanism, so the entire Internet ran at a "best effort" mode. Some Last mile Internet Service Providers who connect end clients to the Internet backbone generally pay very little attention to QoS setup. Most of these ISPs are running their networks on a standard FIFO (First In First Out) basis with no shaping and prioritizing. This results in inefficient and unfair services being provided to unhappy clients. The QoS mechanisms of Viper TES-1000 ensure that your enterprise customers receive the appropriate quality of Internet access service and that everybody in your network receives a fair share of bandwidth. Using the Viper TES-1000 rate limiting and shaping tools you are able to prioritize network bandwidth, to support critical applications, prevent power users from abusing the bandwidth, and preventing your network from being overloaded with malicious traffic such as viruses, floods and Peer to Peer applications. This is especially appreciated when expensive satellite Internet backbone bandwidth is used. The Bandwidth shaping and Throttle engine improves efficiency of broadband resource utilization helping to deliver a cost-effective and high-quality service for end user and a profitable and optimized network service for the ISP.

The Digital Divide in Kentucky: Is Rural Online Learning Sustainable?

The Digital Divide in Kentucky: Is Rural Online Learning Sustainable?

areas? The option typically discussed when the aforementioned technologies are not available, is satellite Internet. This paper examines one of the major obstacles to adult lifelong learning, both formal and informal, due to the lack of broadband Internet accessibility. Adult literacy is the fundamental building block for other learning activities and perhaps one key to successful lifelong learning (Agee, 2005). But how can adult learners use computer technology, especially the Internet, if reading is an issue for them? Access to high-speed Internet affords many learning opportunities to adults because of the tremendous number of multimedia available and the ability to access online tools. These tools do not work well using low-speed connectivity like dial-up, due to significantly lower data transfer speeds. Adults who cannot read may also have problems fully utilizing the Internet simply because of their illiteracy. Though a global issue, this paper examines the current state of accessibility in rural Kentucky from the perspective of a single community in western Kentucky, and reflects upon the struggles to bring additional affordable alternatives to the residents of the area. Additionally, this paper will study satellite efficacy with respect to speed (bandwidth) and cost and relate how this affects long-term sustainability for adult learning.

Optimising Internet Access over Satellite Backhaul

Optimising Internet Access over Satellite Backhaul

Satellite, whose main role is to forward the traffic across attached satellite terminals, i.e. gateways. In this architecture, SGs usually represents a bottleneck where functionality such as traffic monitoring, traffic classification, policing, packet scheduling, and resource management needs to be implemented to realise target quality of service (QoS) requirements while minimizing the operational costs. The opera- tion of the satellite Internet access system is challenged by the intrinsic characteristics of a satellite such as large propagation delay, bursty traffic, wireless transmission errors, significant signal attenuation, het- erogeneous application QoS requirements, and other similar factors. The impact of these characteristics on the system performance can be reduced by proper design of the protocol stack layer.

How do you access the Internet other than dial-up if you live too far from a phone company office for DSL and there is no cable TV on your street? Satellite Internet access may be worth considering. It's ideal for rural Internet users who want broadband access. Satellite Internet does not use telephone lines or cable systems, but instead uses a satellite dish for two- way (upload and download) data communications. Upload speed is about one- tenth of the 500 kbps download speed. Cable and DSL have higher download speeds, but satellite systems are about 10 times faster than a normal modem.

Bundling, Differentiation, Alliances and Mergers: Convergence Strategies in U S  Communication Markets

Bundling, Differentiation, Alliances and Mergers: Convergence Strategies in U S Communication Markets

In addition to these technological aspects, economic forces, such as the need to price discriminate to recover the high fixed costs of network investment (discussed in greater detail in the following section) will work towards more differentiated network platforms. Moreover, as more competitors become involved in the development of applications and services, the technological basis at the higher layers of the network stack becomes more differentiated. There is already a broad sense among applications and service providers that a higher degree of standardization would be desirable. With the gradual emergence of the next generation of internet protocols, one can expect a lengthy transition period in which both IPv4 and IPv6 will coexist. It consequently seems likely that the future network infrastructure will be even more heterogeneous and differentiated. Whereas these platforms will provide a broad range of similar functionalities, each will also provide specialized functions not available from any other platform. Areas of differentiation will include the degree of mobility supported by a platform (full mobility, nomadic, stationary); network security; throughput; resilience; quality of service and price. From a technological perspective, forces of convergence are thus counteracted by important opposite forces that are most likely to result in a differentiated technical infrastructure.

Framework programme. Digital Video Broadcasting-Return Channel via Satellite, DVB-RCS, was originally designed for video broadcast, but it has now been developed into a two-way high-capacity IP-based communications access solution. Today for example, it is the backbone of many tactical military systems such as the US Department of Defense GlobalBroadcast System, and for mission-critical civilian agency internal networks in the US. The key to future widespread adoption, however, is the use of the new generation of Digital Video Broadcast by Satellite: DVB-S2. The new DVB-S2 standard represents a massive leap in term of bandwidth efficiency compared to the former DVB-S standard. The performance improvement is typically around 30%, but in some circumstances it can be up to 130%, e.g. in overcast and/or rainy conditions because DVB-RCS is able to cope better with adverse propagation conditions like these. The key benefit of these efficiency savings is that much higher bandwidth can be supplied at lower cost. These improvements are as a result of two key developments. The first is an improved physical layer, which provides several higher order modulation waveforms with more powerful Forward Error Correction (FEC). The second is real-time adaptation to link and propagation conditions. In terms of FEC, DVB-S2 provides an efficiency saving of around 11% by significantly reducing the probability of an undetected error. Because there is a much smaller chance of an error, the need for a Cyclic Redundancy Check is removed, so that element of protocol overhead can be discarded, thereby reducing the overall size of the packet. In terms of adapting to link and propagation conditions, DVB-S2 can operate in three modes, each more efficient than the last.

Another recent change at Franklin Security Bank was an update of their T-1 from Frontier. “We had to add more bandwidth due to growth. We’d added a branch and about a dozen employees, and were using more Internet-based applications. Those applications were starting to run more slowly so we knew we needed a bigger pipe. Our Frontier Account Executive, Chuck Lipinski, was awesome to work with on this project and the T-1 installation and set up went off without any issues,” says Lordi.

Remote monitoring and instrumentation for Mount Kent Observatory

In the test run, the computer was connected to internet through a router modem: Aztech DSL600EU. A static address is given to the modem, and port forwarding is needed to be configured correctly so that the port will be forwarded to the specified host IP (i.e. the PC running web server). The DSL600EU doesn't support loop back address, which mean another external connection (not within the LAN) must be used to connect to the DSL600EU public IP address in order to test the port forwarding. The test has been done using external connection and the port forwarding is working properly. For simplicity, the remaining test is done on local computer, or dynamic IP address. Following is the testing procedures together with some screenshots.

Might on-line backup be an option? If the amount of data you're backing up is manageable, and your internet connection is relatively fast, then an on-line backup system such as Carbonite, Mozy, JungleDisk or others may well be worth considering. These systems install software on your machine that backs up your critical files to secure servers "somewhere" on the internet, thus getting you both data backup as well as off-site backup at the same time. In addition, some services then allow you to access your backed up files from any machine connected to the internet. For large backups, such as full image or system backups, this approach is typically impractical due to upload speed and storage size limitations.

ROCKET, SATELLITE, AND LAUNCHING OF SATELLITE

ROCKET, SATELLITE, AND LAUNCHING OF SATELLITE

Rockets consist of a propellant, a place to put propellant (such as a propellant tank), and a nozzle. They may also have one or more rocket engines, directional stabilization device(s) (such as fins, vernier engines or engine gimbals for thrust vectoring, gyroscopes) and a structure (typically monologue) to hold these components together. Rockets intended for high speed atmospheric use also have an aerodynamic fairing such as a nose cone, which usually holds the payload. As well as these components, rockets can have any number of other components, such as wings (rocket planes), parachutes, wheels (rocket cars), even, in a sense, a person (rocket belt). Vehicles frequently possess navigation systems and guidance systems that typically use satellite navigation and inertial navigation systems.

Online ticketing or online ticketing brokering, the resale of tickets through the Web site. This sale may be done even without the consent or authorization of the official vendor, or organizers of events, which significantly complicates the situation and increases the risk to the customer via the Internet. We're talking about a wide range of opportunities for fraud, tickets will be sold for all possible events, from soccer games to rock concerts. buyer can even get a ticket by mail, which is when they try to enter the stadium show that complete forgery. [19] For a long time completely legally non-regulated area, an attempt was made in 2008, was held at Ticket Summit in America, the same year in the UK, with the aim to introduce some rules and ethical standards. These conferences big sellers over the Internet, motivated by a number of scams that have reached global proportions, namely sold fake tickets multimillion values for the Olympics in Beijing.[20]Clearly, using the Internet can buy tickets for any event on the planet, but with extra caution and only with brokers that are widely known and have a higher rating.

While Egypt's cinema was still producing over 80 movies a year in the late 80s with a peak of over 100 in 1988, production fell to 13 films in 1995. In parallel, the number of movie theatres fell from over 450 to about 150, most of them in bad conditions. The blame is on pirating, mostly in the Middle East and the USA, the advent of satellite TV and video rental, raising taxes and property value, and skyrocketing production costs.
