A scheme for high-speed data transfer via the Internet for Web service in an extremely large delay environment is proposed. With the wide-spread use of Internet services in recent years, WLAN Internet service in high-speed trains has commenced. The system for this is composed of a satellite communication system between the train and the ground station, which is characterized by extremely large latency of several hundred milliseconds due to long propagation latency. High-speed web access is not available to users in a train in such an extremely large latency network system. Thus, a prefetch scheme for performance acceleration of Web services in this environment is proposed. A test-bed system that implements the proposed scheme is implemented and is its performance in this test-bed is evaluated. The proposed scheme is verified to enable high-speed Web access in the extremely large delay environment compared to conventional schemes.
