A Novel Traffic Control Scheme for Multi-Layered Satellite Network Based on Chain Reaction Model

Ning Li, Pengfei Wang, Zhongliang Deng, Ke Han


Multi-Layered Satellite Network (MLSN) is a kind of delay tolerant network with characters of intermittent connection, long packet queuing time, complex and uncertain delay time, etc. The call congestion rate of new business is higher in delay tolerant network which leads to the reduction of communication quality and the high packet loss rate. The existing traffic control scheme is hard to meet the individual requirements of new business. It becomes more and more important to study the most effective traffic control scheme so as to increase the satellite bandwidth utilization. According to the nuclear chain reaction of atomic physics, a novel traffic control method based on chain reaction model (TCCR) is presented in this paper to realize dynamic data transmission and control for MLSN. The optimal flow distribution scheme will be obtained by analyzing the network transmission information in this algorithm. Simulation by OPENT is done which proves that TCCR can obviously improve the network total throughput, shorten link transmission delay, and reduce packet loss rate of MLSN.
