    In this paper, we consider future satellite networks able to exploit multiple paths to reach mobile users, characterized by GOOD/BAD channels. The interest is to exploit the path diversity by adopting network coding at a shim layer between IP and MAC. A cross-layer approach has been adopted in order to determine the settings of the encoders that improve the performance at transport layer.

    Network coding is a technology that provides core benefits to communication services, in terms of reliability, latency, and data rate, by leveraging on a coding structure that reduces the necessity for retransmissions of packets. Satellite communications are one of the potential applications that can leverage on the benefits of network coding because of their challenging fading environments and high round trip times. In this paper, we propose different rate and energy efficient adaptive network coding schemes for time-variant channels.

  3. Network coding for system-level throughput improvement in satellite systems

    This paper introduces 2 designs based on network coding for throughput improvement in satellite systems. Design 1 applies to the forward downlink of multibeam satellite systems. Network coding is used to optimally mix the traffic through multiple available physical paths and increase the throughput. Design 2 applies to systems where multiple sources transmitting to one or more satellites experience severe packet losses. Using network coding to encode data across users, the system outage probability can be reduced, thus increasing the throughput.

  4. RLNC in satellite networks: A cooperative scenario for delivering M2M traffic

    Manlio Bacco and Alberto Gotta

    This work analyses the use of random linear network coding in land mobile satellite channels to deliver M2M messages to vehicles in urban areas. The considered scenario takes into account a cooperative coverage extension among the on board units via 802.11p, where the use of random linear network coding makes negligible the need for any complementary ground components, such as a road side unit, at least in urban environments, where the density of mobile nodes is typically high.
