The present invention provides a subscriber device (

10

), method (

1000, 1500

), wireless router (

30

), and communication system (

100

). The communication system (

100

) includes at least one subscriber device (

10

) having a message generator (

1612

) for generating a message which includes an indicator of a receive/transmit switching time, and the wireless router (

30

) for communicating with at least one subscriber device, the wireless router having a scheduler (

902

), optimizer (

904

), and an allocation map generator (

906

), wherein the wireless router (

30

) prepares an efficient and optimized channel allocation map for transmission to the subscriber device (

10

) taking into account the indicator of the receive/transmit switching time for the subscriber device (

10

) and wherein the map indicates at least one allocated transmit time, in a form of a block, having a beginning and an end, for transmission by the subscriber device following a receive time.
