Raj Jain, "Design Issues for Traffic Management for the ATM UBR+ Service for TCP over Satellite Networks," NASA/CR-1999-209158, July 1999, 219 pages


This project was a comprehensive research program for developing techniques for improving the performance of internet protocols over Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) based satellite networks. Among the service categories provided by ATM networks, the most commonly used category for data traffic is the unspecified bit rate (UBR) service. UBR allows sources to send data into the network without any feedback control. The project resulted in the numerous ATM Forum contributions and papers.
