We analyze the performance of Priority-Based Multiple Access (PBMA) with contiguous slot assignment to provide multiple services in wireless PCN environments. The scheme supports data transmission in ATM cell formats to comply with future service provisions in wireless networks. This study extends previous performance analysis conducted for PBMA by considering contiguous slot assignments to offer multiple services. Unlike in previous studies where analytical/numerical and simulation results were provided, the analysis is only achieved through computer simulation because of the state space explosion problem.
