Claim of US Patent No. 10,512,093

1. A method of transmitting data on a radio interface of a cellular network, the method comprising:in a configuration mode executed prior to a need for transmitting the data on the radio interface:
receiving at least one configuration message, the at least one configuration message indicating a predetermined first allocation scheme of radio resources on the radio interface, a predetermined second allocation scheme of radio resources on the radio interface, and a service-specific level of interference threshold; and
storing, in a memory, the first allocation scheme, the second allocation scheme, and the service-specific level of interference threshold;
based on a service associated with the data, establishing the service-specific level of interference threshold of the service, and further establishing a level of interference value present on the radio interface;
based on the service-specific level of interference threshold and further based on the level of interference value, selecting between the first allocation scheme and the second allocation scheme; and
transmitting the data on the radio interface employing radio resources indicated by the selected one of the first allocation scheme and the second allocation scheme.
