Abstract : A multi user random access communication system with a population of two classes of users is considered. It is assumed that packets generated by users from different classes have different priorities. Fast moving users in a mobile communication system, or high priority users in a static environment, might be members of the high priority class. A binary feedback collision resolution algorithm is developed and both throughput and delay analysis are performed. Analytical results show that for the operation region of practical interest, the high priority class experiences significantly shorter delays, compared to the low priority one which maintains good delay characteristics.
