The essence of this work is to introduce an interaction between the physical layer and higher network layers, thus enabling a more practical utilization of multiuser detection and supporting services with different QoS parameters. In this paper, a new hybrid TDMA/ Multicode (MC)-CDMA medium access control utilizing multiuser detection is proposed and analyzed. Further, two traffic flow control approaches accompanied the TDMA/MC-CDMA system are proposed. One approach deterministically controls the flow of traffic into the TDMA slots, while the other statistically controls the flow of traffic depending on the instantaneous changes in the traffic load. The two approaches have been examined under a wide range of traffic characteristics where AWGN is only considered besides the mutual interferers from other intracell users. Both approaches show superiority as well as less sensitivity in terms of BER to the traffic changes compared with the conventional system.
