Method of maximizing use of bandwidth for communicating with mobile platforms

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #7187690.

A system and method for switching between transmission modes provides more efficient use of available bandwidth. A content delivery system determines, based upon a predetermined limit, whether to broadcast content to a plurality of mobile platforms or unicast the data content via a point-to-point communication link. Acknowledgment signals from the mobile platforms are used to determine if the predetermined limit has been exceeded. A specific number or percentage defines the predetermined limit within a specified time period. The number of acknowledgment signals received is compared to the limit to determine if an exceedance condition has occurred.
