Statistical priority-based multiple access (SPMA) protocol has attracted much attention in virtue of its support for multi-priority traffic, and the guarantee of low-latency and high-reliability transmissions for high-priority. In this work, we propose an analytical framework to study the performance of SPMA from spatial perspective with tools from the stochastic geometry. We consider two kinds of priority traffic, including high-priority traffic and low-priority traffic. In SPMA, a packet is split into multiple bursts to reduce the collision probability, and the turbo coding, frequency hopping, and time hopping are employed to further decrease the packet loss rate. We first derive the analytical expressions for the medium access probability (MAP) and burst success probability of two priority users in closed form, taking into account the potential transmitters (PTs) density, ratio of different traffic users, amount of orthogonal resources, channel occupancy statistics (COS) threshold, and statistical sliding window (SSW). Based on the derived MAP and burst success probability, we further obtain the packet success probability and spatial throughput. After evaluating the effect of key parameters on the above performance metrics, we provide guidelines on optimal design of several key system parameters, such as the COS threshold and PTs density, to guarantee the high-priority user a 99% packet success probability.
