Equilibrium point analysis is used to evaluate system behavior in a packet reservation multiple access (PRMA) protocol based network. The authors derive the probability of packet dropping given the number of simultaneous conversations. The authors establish conditions for system stability and efficiency. Numerical calculations based on the theory show close agreement with computer simulations. They also provide valuable guides to system design. Because PRMA is a statistical multiplexer, the channel becomes congested when too many terminals are active. For a particular example it is shown that speech activity detection permits 37 speech terminals to share a PRMA channel with 20 slots per frame, with a packet dropping probability of less than 1%
