    General packet radio service (GPRS) is a global system for mobile communications (GSM) packet data service. In order to efficiently accommodate GPRS traffic while maintaining the desired service quality of GSM calls, we propose a GPRS bandwidth-allocation strategy called the bandwidth-on-demand (BoD) strategy. The BoD strategy is adaptive to the change of traffic conditions, and thus can dynamically adjust the number of channels for GSM and GPRS traffic. Taking the effect of packet dropping due to movements of mobile stations into account, this paper develops an analytical model to study the BoD performance in terms of GSM-call-blocking probability and GPRS-packet-dropping probability.
