Dynamic Slot Allocation for TDMA-Systems with Packet Access

Part of the The Kluwer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 366)


To fully exploit the inherent flexibility of packet access protocols like PRMA++ for cellular telecommunications systems also highly flexible slot assignment strategies are necessary. In this paper two dynamic interference adaptive slot assignment algorithms are investigated. The schemes fulfil the requirements of packet access protocols. They are decentralized and need no frequency preplanning, which is a major concern in microcell environments.
