Packet reservation multiple access (PRMA) is a media access control (MAC) protocol for wireless systems which can also be used as a packet control layer on top of TDMA. This paper analyzes the performance of PRMA for data traffic in a wireless communication system. A modification has also been proposed to improve the data transmission fairness under congested traffic condition. Markov model and computer simulations have been used to study the channel utilization, packet access time etc. of the data system. The analysis shows that the performance of the PRMA protocol for data traffic is satisfactory. The derived mathematical model provides an accurate tool for evaluating the system performance
