DAMA DVB-RCS NS2 patch available To apply on latest ns-2.32 version, it makes possible to test TCP connections behavior in simulated DVB-RCS environment with a DAMA shared return channel. Satellite Terminals can be configured so that capacity is requested with CRA, RBDC and VBDC (also mixed) strategies, up to the system capacity.
Return channel is composed of a single carrier divided temporally into frames. A group of frame, each one composed of a constant number of slots, make a superframe. A slot is the minimum amount of capacity allocated to a terminal.
