Satellite-based Internet: a tutorial

Yurong Hu, V.O.K. Li
2001 IEEE Communications Magazine  
In a satellite-based Internet system, satellites are used to interconnect heterogeneous network segments and to provide ubiquitous direct Internet access to homes and businesses.  ...  The NCC and OCCs handle overall network resource management, satellite operation, and orbiting control. The GSs act as network interfaces between various external networks and the satellite network.  ...  Traditional satellites, especially GSOs, serve as bent pipes. They act as repeaters between two communication points on the ground. There is no onboard processing (OBP).  ...
