A journal version of this paper exists and is recommended:

Journal Version: "Power Allocation and Routing in Multi-Beam Satellites with Time Varying Channels," IEEE Transactions on Networking, Feb. 2003.

Conference Version: "Power and Server Allocation in a Multi-Beam Satellite with Time Varying Channels," IEEE INFOCOM Proceedings, June 2002. SLIDES

Note: The journal version extends the problem to treat routing over many satellites. More detail is given in Chapter 3 of my thesis, which treats general ergodic arrivals and channel states, such as Markov modulated inputs and channels. Chapter 4 of the thesis also considers examples of multi-hop satellite constellations with optical crosslinks and RF downlinks.
