Summary: 
Randomly addressed polling was proposed as a multiple access control protocol for wireless local area networks (LANs). However, the protocol has difficulties in supporting real-time services such as voice transmission. We propose a reservation scheme and make it possible to support real-time services. The scheme is described in detail. Efficiency and average access delay are analyzed.
