Abstract

Technological advances are enabling the reception of satellite broadcast even on mobile devices. However, mobile device usage is highly individual and exhibits an on-demand characteristic which rather suggests unicast. In order to avoid a wastage of the strengths of satellite broadcasts, additional effort is needed. This paper presents an approach to integrate satellites into heterogeneous collaborative networks for provision of IP services and broadband Internet access. Thus it supports both real time multimedia streaming and multimedia on demand.
