This letter proposes an efficient uplink scheduling algorithm for voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) services with adaptive multi-rate (AMR) speech codec in IEEE 802.16e/m systems. The proposed scheduling algorithm adopts the random access scheme during silent-period to reduce the waste of uplink bandwidth considering the characteristics of AMR speech codec. The numerical results show that the proposed algorithm can increase the maximum supportable number of voice users by 26% compared to the conventional extended real-time polling service (ertPS).
