In this paper, we analyzed the performance of dynamic resource allocation with channel de-allocation and buffering in cellular networks. Buffers are applied for data traffic to reduce the packet loss probability while channel de-allocation is exploited to reduce the voice blocking probability. The results show that while buffering data traffic can reduce the packet loss probability, it has negative impact on the voice performance even if channel de-allocation is exploited. Although the voice blocking probability can be reduced with large slot capacity, the improvement decreases as the slot capacity increases. On the contrary, the packet loss probability increases as the slot capacity increases. In addition to the mean value analysis, the delay distribution and the 95% delay of data packets are provided.
