    This paper describes a cellular multiple-access scheme based on TDMA for multimedia communication networks. The scheme proposes an admission control of two different multimedia application stream types: real-time and non-real-time. We do not consider interference between cells. The proposed protocol, that is based on TDMA, exploits the available bandwidth fully. The throughput per mobile station is higher compared to other multiple-access protocols, it offers low latency for both real-time and non-real-time communication and the unused reserved bandwidth is reallocated for non-real-time communication. Furthermore, the throughput and latency remain stable under high loads.
