Abstract

In this paper, we explore, via an extensive simulation study, the performance of a new medium access-control (MAC) protocol when integrating voice, video, and e-mail data packet traffic over a wireless channel of high capacity, with errors. Depending on the number of video users admitted into the system, our protocol varies (a) the request bandwidth dedicated to resolving the voice users contention and (b) the probability with which the base station grants information slots to voice users, in order to preserve full priority for video traffic. We evaluate the voice and video packet-dropping probabilities for various voice and video load conditions and the average e-mail data message delays. Our scheme achieves high aggregate channel throughput in all cases of traffic load despite the introduction of errors in the system.
