The comparative performance of a number of reservation-based bandwidth sharing policies that could be used to maximize the link utilization and/or offer equally fair or preferential treatment to a class of supported users, is examined in the context of a radio asynchronous transfer mode local-area network (ATM LAN). Our analytical results, based an a recursion for the link occupancy distribution originally suggested by Kaufman (1981) and Roberts (1981) independently and subsequently extended to include finite source population models, are further extended in the cases of equal sharing of the resources with retries, and a dynamic sharing mechanism in which, when the available capacity is exceeded, weighted reductions for the active users' rates and queueing are employed. Next, examining the application of the above sharing schemes in an indoor radio environment, we apply switched diversity and a Reed-Solomon-based forward error correction (FEC) scheme to recover radio-related (Rayleigh fading) packet losses. The performance and the effects of the fading-mitigating switched-antenna-diversity mechanism and the required on a packet-basis coding protection are taken into account in order to establish the actual radio link throughput under the above conditions
