Satellite is considered a vital technology for enabling ubiquitous access to broadband services in many countries. This paper explores provision of IP-based broadband satellite access with Quality of Service (QoS). It analyses a set of example scenarios, based on the recently published DVB-RCS2 standard involving web and voice traffic. It specifically explores the interaction between Bandwidth-on-Demand (BoD) and QoS, showing that this interaction offers the flexibility required for satellite Internet service operators to manage the bandwidth of broadband users in a multi-service access network.
