Its structure is based on traditional PRMA++ protocol. In addition to PRMA++, a dynamic adaptation of percentage of bandwidth to use for

The goal is also achieved by providing for a suitable bandwidth allocation strategy, which assigns to different broadband services a different amount of frequency resource, and by coupling it with a suitable management scheme for the base station reservation buffer. Obtained results shows that performance of D-RMA protocols are superior when compared with a traditional "nondynamic" protocol, both in terms of offered GoS to carried services and number of activable connections in a microcell at the same time.
