Summary: 
The non-collision packet reservation multiple access (NC-PRMA) protocol has been proposed for wireless voice communications. In that protocol, although it can avoid any collision by using control minislot, the terminal which generates its talkspurt in a current frame has to wait till a next frame to transmit an asking packet to obtain reservation. Furthermore, under integrated voice and data traffic, in the conventional NC-PRMA the voice packet dropping probability becomes worse, because of the number of slots that voice terminals can access are limited. In this paper, we propose the NC-PRMA with random transmission to idle slots. First, we evaluate the mean access delay and the voice packet dropping probability under only voice traffic by the theoretical analysis and the computer simulation. It is shown that the proposed scheme attains lower mean access delay than the conventional NC-PRMA. Next, we evaluate the data packet delay and the voice packet dropping probability under integrated voice and data traffic by the computer simulation. It is shown that the proposed scheme attains lower packet dropping probability than the PRMA and the conventional NC-PRMA.
