In this paper, a modified version of the packet reservation multiple-access (PRMA) protocol is proposed to provide spatially dispersed voice and data user terminals wireless access to a base station over a common short-range radio channel. An analytical approach is presented in order to derive system performance in terms of mean data message delay and voice packet dropping probability. A suitable permission probability design is also proposed to enhance system performance. Performance comparisons with an extension of the PRMA protocol to voice data systems previously reported in literature are shown to highlight the better behavior of this approach
