Abstract
The growth in use of Internet-based applications in recent years has led to telecommunication networks transporting an increasingly large amount of In ternet Protocol (IP)-based traffic. Proposed broadband satellite constellat ion networks, currently under development, will be required to transport IP traffic. A case can be made for implementing IF routing directly within th e constellation network, in order to transport IP traffic well and to provi de good support for IP multicast and for emerging IF-based quality of servi ce (QoS) guarantees. This paper examines strategies for implementing and op erating IP routing effectively within satellite constellation networks, giv en known constraints on the constellation resulting from satellite mobility , global visibility, routing and addressing.
