Admittedly, I´m somewhat disappointed.
It is well possible that my scenario was nonsense. And it is well
possible that my question was not clear.
However, I always enjoy discussions where I can learn from. And now, I´m
given the hint "our commercial product does this".
It is not clear whether this is the case or not. Neither do I have a
descriptions of the mechanisms in use. (I did not find any at the ViaSat
Homepage. Only the typical whitepaper material.)
Yesterday, I thought I had written a paper on this issue - and it were
rejected with the simple statement: "Our commercial product does this."
With no further description or hint.
Although it might be no big deal to set up a simulation for connection
splitting, I spent some work on it. And my questions might be stupid -
at least theire are honest. And when I read the comment, a commercial
product did this all without further hint, this made me sad and it made
me angry. Particularly as I know similar comments from paper rejects.
Perhaps, it´s my personal problem that I cannot deal with situations
like this very well.
