The performance of radio resource allocation in GPRS network is critical for the dimensioning and the optimization of next generation 4G networks with GPRS capacity. Previous work has analyzed this problem, however in the present work a two dimension Markov chain, using guard channels for handover calls and priority for voice calls to pre-empt GPRS data packets is assumed. Moreover a queue is considered to be valid only for the pre-empted data packets.
