Resource Allocation Schemes for Voice and Data Integration over Wireless Cellular Networks

  • Wessam Ajib

This paper proposes different schemes of physical channels assignment to mobile stations in order to integrate voice transmissions and data transmissions over TDMA wireless cellular networks. Voice transmissions correspond to real time services, and for that reason the proposed algorithms of channels partition between voice and data have to assure higher priority for voice calls. These schemes are suggested and studied in the context of GSM network and General Packet Radio Service (GPRS). However, these schemes can be used for diversified types of wireless networks. We describe the mechanisms of the different proposed schemes, their similarities and their differences. We evaluate their performance considering the best effort performance parameters and the WWW service, expected to be one of the important traffic applications using GPRS.
