Guest Editorial: Satellite Systems, Applications and Networking.

By P.D. Mitchell and Ray E. Sheriff


yesGuest Editorial of Special Issue (featuring eight original papers, comprising 133 pages in total). Whilst satellite systems continue to be at the forefront of broadcast communication\ud service provision, they have an increasingly important role to play in the provision of\ud global Internet services. There has been a strong trend towards convergence of\ud communication services in recent times, with the Internet providing the ideal platform\ud on which to base such convergence. Even traditional circuit-switched applications\ud (such as voice and video streaming) have been shown to work effectively over the\ud Internet. Although the Internet is prevalent in the developed world, satellites are vital\ud to extending this into more remote and sparsely populated regions of the world. It is\ud therefore important that satellite technology is advanced to provide seamless\ud interoperability with the Internet and adequate Quality of Service (QoS) support. The\ud purpose of this special issue is to present research devoted to furthering satellite\ud technology and networking to support the provision of both current and future\ud applications
