Effective bandwidth utilization and scalability are vital issues for IP networking over a large- scale uni-directional link (UDL), such as a wide-area wireless broadcast over satellite or terrestrial digital broadcasting. On a large-scale UDL, the current network architecture is not scalable to cover an extraordinary number of receivers that communicate using a Link-layer Tunneling Mechanism (LLTM). This paper proposes a network architecture for a large-scale UDL that:(1) decreases the traffic load of LLTM at the upstream network of the UDL,(2) ...
