Information on Fixed-assigned multiple access (FAMA)
Fixed-assigned multiple access (FAMA) is one of the two
main techniques for allocating channels to users. In FAMA, each
user is allocated a channel permanently, whether they use it
or not. This is inefficient and most multiple-access systems use
demand-assigned multiple access (DAMA) in which the available channels are
allocated on an as-required basis to users.
