12 Preface Satellites for communication services have evolved quite significantly in size and power since the launch of the first commercial satellites in This has permitted a consequent reduction in the size of earth stations, and hence their cost, with a consequent increase in number. Small stations, with antennas in the order of rn, have become very popular under the acronym VSAT, which stands for Very Small Aperture Terminals. Such stations can easily be installed at the customer s premises and, considering the inherent capability of a satellite to collect and broadcast signals over large areas, are being widely used to support a large range of services. Examples are broadcast and distribution services for data, image, audio and video, collection and monitoring for data, image and video, two-way interactive services for computer transactions, data base inquiry, internet access and voice communications. The trend towards deregulation, which started in the United States, and progressed in other regions of the world, has triggered the success of VSAT networks for corporate applications. This illustrates that technology is not the only key to success. Indeed, VSAT networks have been installed and operated only in those regions of the world where demand existed for the kind of services that VSAT technology could support in a cost effective way, and also where the regulatory framework was supportive. This book on VSAT networks aims at introducing the reader to the important issues of services, economics and regulatory aspects. It is also intended to give detailed technical insight on networking and radiofrequency link aspects, therefore addressing the specific features of VSAT networks at the three lower layers of the OSI Reference Layer Model for data communications.

13 x PREFACE From my experience in teaching, I felt I should proceed from the general to the particular. Therefore, Chapter 1 can be considered as an introduction to the subject, with rather descriptive contents on VSAT network configurations, services, operational and regulatory aspects. The more intrigued reader can then explore the subsequent chapters. Chapter 2 deals with those aspects of satellite orbit and technology which influence the operation and performance of VSAT networks. Chapter 3 details the operational aspects which are important to the customer. Installation problems are presented, and a list of potential concerns to the customer is explored. Hopefully, this chapter will not be perceived as discouraging, but on the contrary as a friendly guide for avoiding misfortunes, and getting the best from a VSAT network. The next two chapters are for technique oriented readers. Actually, I thought this would be a piece of cake for my students, and a reference text for network design engineers. Chapter 4 deals with networking. It introduces traffic characterisation, and discusses network and link layers protocols of the OSI Reference Layer Model, as used in VSAT networks. It also presents simple analysis tools for the dimensioning of VSAT networks from traffic demand and user specifications in terms of blocking probability and response time. Chapter 5 covers the physical layer, providing the basic radio frequency link analysis, and presenting the parameters that condition link quality and availability. An important aspect discussed here is interference, as a result of the small size of the VSAT antenna, and its related large beamwidth. Appendices are provided for the benefit of those readers who may lack some background and have no time or opportunity to refer to other sources. The second edition of this book takes into account my experience while using the first edition as a support for my lectures. It incorporates some theoretical developments that were missing in the first edition, which constitute useful tools for the dimensioning and the performance evaluation of VSAT networks. In particular, Chapter 4 provides a more detailed treatment on how to evaluate blocking probability and expands on the information transfer delay analysis of the first edition. This second edition also underplays the regulatory aspects, as during the seven year interval between this second edition and the first, many administrations have simplified and harmonised their regulatory framework. I felt this topic was not perhaps as important as it used to be.

14 PREFACE xi I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the students I have taught, at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications, the University of Surrey, CEI-Europe and other places, who, by raising questions, asking for details and bringing in their comments, have helped me to organise the material presented here.

26 1 Introduction This chapter aims to provide the framework of VSAT technology in the evolving context of satellite communications in terms of network configuration, services, economics, operational and regulatory aspects. It can also be considered by the reader as a guide to the following chapters which aim to provide more details on specific issues. 1.1 VSAT NETWORK DEFINITION VSAT, now a well established acronym for Very Small Aperture Terminal, was initially a trademark for a small earth station marketed in the 1980s by Telcom General in the USA. Its success as a generic name probably comes from the appealing association of its first letter V, which establishes a victorious context, or may be perceived as a friendly sign of participation, and SAT which definitely establishes some reference to satellite communications. In this book, the use of the word terminal which appears in the clarification of the acronym will be replaced by earth station, or station for short, which is the more common designation in the field of satellite communications for the equipment assembly allowing reception from or transmission to a satellite. The word terminal will be used to designate the end user equipment (telephone set, facsimile machine, television set, computer, etc.) which generates or accepts the traffic that is conveyed within VSAT networks. This complies with regulatory texts, such as those of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), where for instance equipment generating data traffic, such as computers, are named Data Terminal Equipment (DTE).

27 2 INTRODUCTION VSATs are one of the intermediary steps of the general trend in earth station size reduction that has been observed in satellite communications since the launch of the first communication satellites in the mid 1960s. Indeed, earth stations have evolved from the large INTELSAT Standard A earth stations equipped with antennas 30 m wide, to today s receive-only stations with antennas as small as 60 cm for direct reception of television transmitted by broadcasting satellites, or hand held terminals for radiolocation such as the Global Postioning System (GPS) receivers. Present day hand held satellite phones (IRIDIUM, GLOBALSTAR) are pocket size. Figure 1.1 illustrates this trend. Therefore, VSATs are at the lower end of a product line which offers a large variety of communication services; at the upper end are large stations (often called trunking stations) which support large capacity satellite links. They are mainly used within international switching networks to support trunk telephony services between countries, possibly on different continents. Figure 1.2 illustrates how such stations collect traffic from end users via terrestrial links that are part of the public switched network of a given country. These stations are quite expensive, with costs in the range of $10 million, and require important civil works for their installation. Link capacities are in the range of a few thousand telephone channels, or equivalently about one hundred Mbs 1. They are owned and operated by national telecom operators, such as the PTTs, or large private telecom companies TRUNKING STATIONS THIN ROUTE STATIONS VSATS MOBILE and PERSONAL STATIONS 2000 Figure 1.1 VSAT: a step towards earth station size reduction
