A power and spreading gain allocation strategy is considered for effectively providing data services for mobile users with different levels of priorities in a DS-CDMA system supporting real-time and non-real-time services. Specifically, the uplink in the DS-CDMA system is considered subject to a constraint on total power received at the base station caused by non-real-time data services. The constraint is imposed to meet QoS requirements of real-time services. The priority level of a data user is specified by the weighting factor assigned to the data throughput of the user. Our strategy implements a relative prioritization that affords a trade-off between spectral efficiency and strict prioritization.
