Abstract

See full text

Communication equipment allocates a communication resource region which is used for communication with equipment of a communicating party and performs scheduling of resources. A data classification unit classifies data into small-volume RTD, large-volume RTD or nRTD. Based on the result of the classification, a scheduling unit allocates a communication resource region under a first condition that the RTD has priority over the nRTD, a second condition that the small-volume RTD has priority over the large-volume RTD, a third condition that a previously used communication resource region is, if possible, allocated to the small-volume RTD, and a fourth condition that the large-volume RTD and nRTD are allocated with priority given to equipment of a communicating party for which high communication quality is ensured. A communication unit performs communication with the equipment of the communicating party according to the result of the scheduling.
