Demographically weighted traffic flow models for adaptive routing in packet-switched non-geostationary satellite meshed networks

By M. Mohorcic, A. Svigelj, G. Kandus, Yim Fun Hu and Ray E. Sheriff


noIn this paper, a performance analysis of adaptive routing is presented for packet-switched inter-satellite link (ISL)networks, based on shortest path routing and two alternate link routing forwarding policies. The selected routing algorithm\ud and link-cost function are evaluated for a low earth orbit satellite system, using a demographically weighted traffic flow model. Two distinct traffic flow patterns are modelled: hot spot and regional. Performance analysis, in terms\ud of quality of service and quantity of service, is derived using specifically developed simulation software to model the ISL network, taking into account topology adaptive routing only, or topology and traffic adaptive routing
