Abstract

The use of satellite communications to support the Internet of Things paradigm is of paramount importance for application scenarios where machines are spread in remote and wide areas. In such context, this paper proposes an efficient hierarchical radio access scheme. Ground machines randomly access the radio channel to communicate with their cluster heads, which in turn relay the cluster's aggregated traffic toward the satellite. The aim is optimizing the resource allocation to different communication stages, allowing resource reuse among clusters, in order to minimize the packet drop probability, and hence, to maximize the system throughput. First, the optimal solution is derived for the single cluster, then it is extended to the multi-cluster scenario. Numerical results show the effectiveness of the proposed method, also in comparison with benchmark approaches.
