The Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) will provide multimedia services to users in whatever environment via uniform service access procedures. Efficient medium access control (MAC) protocols are needed to guarantee a high capacity. This paper deals with packet reservation multiple access (PRMA), widely considered as an efficient MAC protocol in terrestrial microcellular systems, for voice and data transmissions in a UMTS based on low Earth orbit-mobile satellite systems (LEO-MSSs). Through a suitable choice of the system parameter values, the PRMA protocol may achieve a good quality of service also in LEO-MSSs
