2 The predicted change of four access technologies over the next ten years. It is forecast that DSL technology will grow at a greater rate than the cable modem market, but that dial-up modems over the PSTN will fall by the end of 2010 as broadband access becomes available to all homes. There is a diversity of opinion between the analysts on the predicted number of homes connected by 2005, varying from 2 to almost 5 million. There are many factors affecting the growth of broadband within Europe and North America — these include cost, coverage and content.

2 Application Layer Even though a lot of emphasis is placed on improving the performance of transport layer protocols over satellite links, it is important not to overlook the improvements that can be made to the performance of application layer protocols. Some application layer protocols are particularly ‘chatty’ or use inefficient headers. In this case, application-layer PEPs can be effectively used to improve protocol performance over satellite links. In other cases, performance improvement can be achieved by making an effective use of features already present in the protocol.

The reason for this is that performance-enhancing proxies generally cause IPsec to think that packets have been intercepted or tampered with, which results in the IPsec client software discarding them. However, this problem can be overcome easily by performing the PEP function before the IPsec operation. Furthermore, IPsec can work either in a transport mode, where the IP payload is encrypted but the IP header information is left untouched, or in a tunnel mode, where the IP address and payload are hidden by the IPsec header.
