This paper proposes a new packet rate scheduling scheme for a non-real time data service over the uplink of a burst switching-based direct sequence code division multiple access (DS/CDMA) system to support the integrated voice/data service. We consider the most general form of optimization problem formulation to determine the optimal number of transmission-time groups along with their data rates, which minimize the average packet transmission delay. An ordered packet length-based group-wise transmission (OLGT) scheme is proposed as a simple heuristic solution approach to this problem and present some analytical results for performance comparison with other possible schemes.
