This paper proposed a method of slot allocation in a multislot TDMA system when multiple service priorities are supported. The algorithm is tested both in Variable Rate Reservation Access (VRRA) and Advanced TDMA protocols. We exploit the multislot reservation capability to achieve the delay requirements of each priority level. The channel allocation algorithm assumed that all data terminals are capable of multislot reservation. In this case the delay variance can be controlled based on the packet length information and the accumulated delay of each data user. The performance of the system is evaluated using the cumulative delay distribution and mean overall delays for the different user types.
