Abstract

Satellite radiotelecommunication systems have large and constantly moving cells compared to the small and fixed coverage areas in a terrestrial wire- less communication system. The satellite coverage areas cannot be shaped to map existing geographical entities as governed by particular sets of political, regulatory or business policies. Nevertheless, the network needs to enforce such rules based on the subscriber location. In this paper system, relevant areas governed by particular sets of rules will be called Service Control Areas (SCA).
