Özet

We derive a Markov Model to calculate new call and hand-off call blocking probabilities in LEO satellite networks carrying voice calls. The model is used to define blocking conditions for new and hand-off calls. The satellite constellation is treated as a group of M/M/K/K queues effecting each other with a set of constraints.
