Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0001186A1] The present invention relates to the efficient traffic handling in TDMA systems using both circuit switched and packet switched traffic. The method according to the invention comprising the following steps: specifying a maximum number of channels that may be allocated to packet switched connections for each frequency; specifying a maximum number of connections that may be allocated to one channel; when a packet switched connection is requested, performing the following steps: checking if the maximum number of channels have been allocated and, if not, allocating the available channels to the connection; if more channels were requested, allocating other channels among the channels that may be allocated to packet switched connections to the requested packet switched connection. A control node in a mobile telecommunications network comprising programs for performing said method is also described.
