Satellite networks are capable of contenting a variety of data transmission needs of users in geographically diverse locations throughout the world. Multi-layered satellite networks (MLSNs) can construct efficient communications networks due to their extensive coverage and high network capacity. However, throughput degradation and severe end-to-end delay could occur in MLSNs because of the traffic congestion. To resolve these problems, the authors first propose a novel MEO/LEO satellite network architecture that construct effective inter-satellite links. Then the authors present a network coding-based multi-path routing algorithm to deliver traffic through the hybrid satellite network. The analysis of characteristics of the proposed scheme are addressed by performance evaluations in simulation.
