Broadband satellite will play an important role to provide universal broadband access for the users. In order to lower the cost, the next-generation satellite systems should support IPv6 and seamlessly integrate with terrestrial networks, including wireless local loops. Based on the studies on the requirements and design constraints, in this paper, a novel network architecture has been proposed as a potential solution to the above problems. The proposed network architecture supports both transparent and regenerative topologies and can seamlessly interworking with WLL. It also integrates QoS, multicast, security, and mobility functions to support a range of transport requirements. How to apply this network architecture to support three different scenarios, namely corporate application scenario, residential application scenario and collective access terminal scenario, are also described.
