The high-speed downlink packet access (HSPDA) system is expected to effectively support voice services when Release 7/8 features are adopted in the system. In this letter, we point out that a voice packet can be transmitted at a lower power level than normal in the HSDPA network. We propose a power allocation scheme that adjusts the transmission power of voice packets optimally and allocates the remaining transmission power to data services in order to improve data throughput. The proposed power allocation is analyzed with a Rayleigh fading channel model and compared to conventional fixed power allocation.
