This paper tackles the classical problem of transmission rate allocation in satellite networks where fading may negatively impact communications. Within the framework of multiobjective programming (MOP), this paper introduces a transmission rate allocation criterion among Earth stations (ESs) called L-p-problem-based rate allocation (L(p)RA). The allocations provided by L(p)RA are representative of a compromise among the need of different performance metrics such as packet loss and transmission power (TP). This paper determines the condition for the existence and the value of a L(p)RA transmission rate allocation bound R-bound, to which the transmission rate globally allocated by L(p)RAconverges when the overall available transmission rate R-TOT tends to infinity. The performance analysis, which is carried out through simulations under different satellite channel conditions, is aimed at investigating L(p)RA features, at showing the existence of the rate bound and the advantages concerning the rate allocation given by using L(p)RA, and at comparing L(p)RA with two other schemes in the literature concerning allocated rate, packet loss rate, transmit power, and execution time.
