Adaptive Reservation Multiple Access Protocol (ARMAP) has been designed to provide explicit support for integrated services over wireless radio networks. It allows terminals to communicate with multiple traffic types, including data, voice, and digital video, providing quality of service (QoS) guarantees to video connections and a high priority to voice connections. The regularity in the video packet generation process is exploited in the protocol to provide timely and contention free channel access for dynamic reservations. An adaptive reservation-slot scheduling algorithm ensures near-optimum bandwidth usage and near-optimum power consumption by the radio terminal. Simulation with realistic parameters reveals that ARMAP achieves a promising combination of bandwidth efficiency, and quality of service for time bounded isochronous traffic.
