In this contribution, we present simulation results to assess buffer requirements for TCP/IP over satellite UBR networks. We perform experiments with both LEO and GEO satellite delays, for various buffer sizes and number of sources. We conclude that with sufficiently large buffers (0.5RTT or more) the performance of TCP- SACK over UBR with per-VC accounting is scalable with respect to the number of sources.
