Advanced traffic management based on the dynamic resource assignment allows a broadband satellite system such as euroskyway (ESW) to dynamically assign the resources of connections. The mechanisms of the dynamic assignment exploit variations of burstiness exhibited by real time and non-real time variable bit rate traffic sources to perform an optimized resource redistribution. The efficiency of the dynamic bandwidth allocation capability (DBAC) depends on the accuracy of the traffic source description; inaccurate assessment of the arrival process will cause an overhead and a degraded utilisation of system resources. In this paper a flexible traffic burstiness predictor for dynamic bandwidth resource allocation based on neural network is presented. The approach is able to perform an online estimation of expected resource requests implementing traffic resource assignment by using a sub-symbolic adaptive representation of the traffic source. The achieved results prove that the flexible approach is more effective than the ones based on fixed schemes designed using analytical traffic source description when applied on the satellite terminal ESW system component.
