Future wireless communication systems will provide mobile terminals with high bit-rate transmissions for accessing broadband wired networks. In this paper, we envisage a Time Division Multiple Access - Time Division Duplexing (TDMA-TDD) air interface and we propose a Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol, named Dynamic Scheduling - TDD (DS-TDD), that allows guaranteeing the QoS of different traffic classes and efficiently supports uplink/downlink traffic asymmetries. The DS-TDD performance is theoretically analyzed. Moreover, the DS-TDD protocol is compared with another scheme proposed in the literature. Finally, the impact of packet errors on the DS-TDD performance is evaluated.
