Satellite transmissions can suffer from high channel impairments, especially on the link between a satellite and a mobile end-user. To cope with these errors, physical and link layer reliability schemes have been introduced at the price of an end-to-end delay increase resulting in high jitter. Unfortunately, both the delay and the jitter negatively impacts on multimedia traffic. As a matter of fact, not taking into account the channel state greatly decreases the Quality of Experience (QoE) of VoIP users. In this paper, we propose to solve this issue by scheduling data transmission as a function of the channel condition. We first investigate existing scheduling mechanisms and analyze their performance for VoIP traffic with the objective to lower both latency and jitter, which are the most important metrics to achieve a consistent VoIP service. We select the best candidate among several schedulers and propose a novel algorithm specifically designed to carry VoIP over LEO constellations. Our simulations show that in some scenarios, we double the QoE of VoIP users.
