  annote = {This article gives a succinct introduction to satellite-based Internet systems. Satellite systems is not a homogeneous group. It comprises everything from geostationary satellites to low earth orbit satellites. The article covers in a very balanced way, all these systems and pertaining problems. One major problem is medium access control. A quite thorough treatment of MAC protocols for satellite links are given. An emphasis is on discussing open issues. An attractive solution for satellite-based Internet architectures are LEO systems with on-board processing and inter-link communication. However, this makes routing a real problem. In the article, the authors first discuss the drawbacks with those routing protocols used in terrestial networks, and then mention some routing protocols that have been specifically designed for satellite communication, e.g. DT-DVTR and VN. The article concludes with a discussion of the performance of TCP over satellite links.},
