This paper describes the network architecture of an Asiawide satellite Internet that considers the situations in developing regions. The design considerations for the architecture are costs, effective use of satellite bandwidth, scalability, and routing strategy when combined with terrestrial links. The architecture includes using one-way shared satellite links to reduce costs, IP multicast to leverage the broadcast nature of satellite links, QoS, audio-video application gateway to adapt to the limited bandwidth of satellite links. This architecture is implemented in an operational network testbed connecting 13 countries and supporting a distance learning project.
