Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper investigates the performance of UDP-based protocols operating over a DVB satellite link. The first part of the paper describes the Ultra- Lightweight Encapsulation (ULE), and compares this with the Multi Protocol Encapsulation (MPE), focusing on UDP traffic. The second examines the potential use of IP protocol header compression to improve the transmission efficiency of links. Performance is estimated, and issues identified in supporting Robust Header Compression (ROHC) over ULE links.
