This book presents a broadband network designed with characterising propagation as well as networking issues to deliver communication services to a large population in remote areas. Long term rainfall data has been analysed to characterise attenuation level at a selected region such as Dhaka. Radar and rain gauge measurements at Sparsholt are also used to find rain cell size distribution, which is a crucial factor in site diversity implementation to combat severe rain fade. The network model is designed with dimensioning the effective bandwidth to support a number of users over the satellite link by taking into account the multimedia traffic characteristics. A robust coding scheme is implemented to improve the link quality to deliver broadband services. Different enhancement schemes are implemented to optimise TCP performance over satellite links. The book should be suitable for students at graduate/postgraduate level in Electronic Engineering in general, and Satellite Communications and Networking in particular. It is recommended for anyone who aspires to understand the concepts, structure, and elements of a broadband network.
