In reservation radio packet transmission protocols, non-collision packet reservation multiple access (NC-PRMA) is known to be able to transmit packets without any collision and to attain higher throughput than packet reservation multiple access (PRMA). However, so far only NC-PRMA in voice-only traffic has been studied. In this paper we evaluate NC-PRMA in integrated voice and data traffic. First, considering data terminals, we formulate an equilibrium point analysis by guaranteeing the number of slots for data packet transmission in one frame. The number is decided according to the number of terminals. Next, we evaluate the throughput and the voice packet dropping probability by theoretical analysis and computer simulation. It is shown that in integrated voice and data traffic NC-PRMA attains better throughput and voice packet dropping probability than PRMA.
