Tech Class: Telemetry over IP Tutorial, Gary Thom
June 14th, 1300-1500
As telemetry ground stations are finally making the move toward network centric architectures, it is worth considering the lessons learned over the previous 10 years of designing, installing, troubleshooting, and optimizing telemetry data distribution over IP networks. This paper discusses some of the architectural decisions to be made and some of the pitfalls to avoid in developing the next generation of networked telemetry ground stations. Critical issues such as latency, efficiency, data loss and Quality of Service are addressed, as well as techniques for troubleshooting these problems. Also included in the class is a discussion of the effectiveness and efficiency of evolving packet formats.
Key Words: Internet, IP, TCP, UDP, TMoIP, network, PCM, Latency, packet loss.
