A novel radio connection management scheme for QoS-provisioning transport of ATM traffic over a broadband satellite link is presented. The new scheme effectively manages the air interface connections via separation of connection types, establishing QoS-based connections and deploying an efficient communication mapping and lateral scheme. The scheme optimises in respect of cell loss rate for individual services and minimises bandwidth. Evaluation of the scheme is presented for a GEO multimedia satellite system.
