                         users of the electrical system (from consumers to the electric 
                         system operators and market operators). Some applications such as 
                         the SCADA systems, which control generators or substations, have 
                         consequences, for example, with a communication delay. The result 
                         of a failure to deliver a control message due to noncompliance of 
                         the time constraint can be catastrophic. On the other hand, 
                         applications such as smart metering of consumption have fewer 
                         restrictions. Since each type of application has different quality 
                         of service requirements (importance, delay, and amount of data to 
                         transmit) to transmit its messages, the policy to control and 
                         share the resources of the data communication network must 
                         consider them. In this paper Markov Decision Process Theory is 
                         employed to determine optimal policies to explore as much as

                         defined to each kind of message. First a non-preemptive model is 
                         formulated and after that a preemptive model is derived. Numerical 
                         results are used to compare FIFO, non-preemptive and preemptive
