In this paper, we propose a dynamic TDMA with priority-based request packet transmission scheme (D-TDMA/PRPTS) which applies priority-based request packet transmission scheme instead of slotted ALOHA (S-ALOHA). D-TDMA/PRPTS can avoid collisions between voice request packets and data request packets and transmit voice request packets preferentially. This makes D-TDMA/PRPTS enlarge the system capacity for voice users with SAD. We analyze voice packet dropping probability and channel utilization for voice traffic by using an appropriate Markov model. We also present simulation results to verify the analysis and to investigate data performances as well, with the voice-data integrated scenario.
