Interconnection of ATM Networks via Satellite Links for Multimedia Teleconferencing

  • Three emerging technologies are combined in a setup that has been installed and tested at GMD - the German National Research Center for Information Technology: 1. Multimedia Telecooperation Applications; 2. ATM-based high-speed networks; 3. Satellite links. The results are promising: After some initial problems, the complete scenario is up and running, allowing the interconnection of local high-speed infrastructures in rural areas to a core network via satellite. This paper describes the R&D background and state- of-the-art that led us to this approach. It then describes the communication infrastructure and the application infra- structure of the setup, the problems we had and the solu- tions we found. Finally, our experiences are summarized, and an outlook is made for future implementations.
