Paper Abstract

The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) which is widely used in the Internet, performs very well on wired networks. However, in the case of satellite channels, due to the delay and transmission errors, TCP performance degrades significantly. In this paper, a new idea of placing a TCP spoofing proxy on board the satellite is considered. A novel Satellite Transport Protocol (STP) which takes advantage of the special properties of the satellite channel is also proposed in this paper. By using simulation, as compared with traditional TCPs, we show that the on-board spoofing proxy integrated with the special transport protocol can significantly enhance throughput performance on the high bit-error rate (BER) satellite links, the time needed to transfer files and the bandwidth used in the reverse path are sharply reduced.
