The paper presents a high performance wireless access and switching system for interconnecting mobile users in a community of interest. Radio channel and time slot assignments are made on user demand, while the switch operations are controlled by a scheduling algorithm designed to maximize utilization of system resources and optimize performance. User requests and assignments are carried over a low-capacity control channel, while user information is transmitted over the traffic channels. The proposed system resolves both the multiple access and the switching problems and allows a direct connection between the mobile end users. The system also provides integration of voice and data traffic in both the access link and the switching equipment. The “movable boundary” approach is used to achieve dynamic sharing of the channel capacity between the voice calls and the data packets. Performance analysis based on a discrete time Markov model, carried out for the case of optimum scheduling yields call blocking probabilities and data packet delays. Performance results indicate that data packets may be routed via the exchange node with limited delays, even with heavy load of voice calls. Also the authors have proposed scheduling algorithms that may be used in implementing this system
