Brecht, J. and Hanzo, L. (1997) Statistical Packet Assignment Multiple Access for Wireless Asynchronous Transfer Mode Systems At ACTS Summit'97, Denmark. 07 - 10 Oct 1997. , pp. 734-738.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Statistical Packet Assignment Multiple Access (SPAMA) is proposed, based on a statistical allocation of bandwidth resources to terminals which share a slotted, framed channel. The statistical nature of the centralized slot assignment scheme allows an accurate matching of bitrate requirements for different multimedia services with a minimal amount of signalling, while maintaining a throughput of up to 93%.
