  • Publication number: 20220376776
    Abstract: Some implementations of the disclosure relate to dynamic switching of a satellite inroute data path between a Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) method and a Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) method. In one implementation, a satellite terminal comprises one or more processors; and one or more non-transitory computer-readable storage media configured with instructions executable by the one or more processors to cause the satellite terminal to perform operations comprising: communicating, using the satellite terminal, over an inroute TDM channel; determining, based on an ingress traffic rate to the satellite terminal or a determination that the satellite terminal has not received any traffic flows classified for communication using TDM, to switch communications from the inroute TDM channel to an inroute TDMA channel; and after determining to switch communications, switching, at the satellite terminal, from communicating over the inroute TDM channel to communicating over the inroute TDMA channel.

  • Patent number: 11444687
    Abstract: Some implementations of the disclosure relate to dynamic switching of a satellite inroute data path between a Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) method and a Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) method. In one implementation, a method comprises: communicating, using a satellite terminal, over an inroute TDMA channel; determining, at the satellite terminal, based at least on an aggregate ingress traffic rate to the satellite terminal, to switch communications from the inroute TDMA channel to an inroute TDM channel; and after determining to switch communications, sending, from the satellite terminal to a Gateway Earth Station, a request to be allocated an inroute TDM channel.

  • Patent number: 10172032
    Abstract: A system and method are disclosed for admission control of mobile conversational user sessions by a satellite network is described. When a request to admit a new session over a satellite network is received, the radio access bearer setup request is transmitted to a remote terminal of the satellite network. The system determines if a requested guaranteed bit rate for the new session is available from the remote terminal. If the requested guaranteed bit rate is available, the terminal forwards the request to a gateway of the satellite network. The new session is subsequently admitted over the satellite network and allocated the requested guaranteed bit rate.
