IP over Satellite

IPoS expands reach of satellite apps
“IP over Satellite (IPoS), which the Telecommunications Industry Association ratified as TIA-1008 in November 2003, is the only industry standard optimized for delivering IP broadband services over two-way satellite channels. Already implemented in more than 300,000 deployed satellite terminals (which represents about 70% of the installed market), IPoS will provide a catalyst for dramatic growth in the satellite industry by delivering always-on IP services – such as e-mail, streaming video, Web browsing and IP telephony. ”
The big issue facing this technology is the 800ms delay from ground to satellite and back again. Being a rural dweller with no broadband service. It is a tempting solution. However I require low response times, so mu ISDN connection will have to suffice for the moment
