This paper deals with a random reservation TDMA protocol able to support constant bit rate services as well as variable bit rate services. In particular, voice communications and data transmissions are considered. Voice terminals have a higher priority assigned than data terminals in accessing the shared channel. A suitable analytical approach is proposed in order to evaluate the data and voice subsystem performance. Comparisons to the well known PRMA scheme are also given in order to highlight the superior performance of the proposed approach in terms of maximum data load and overall throughput.
