This paper proposes a medium access control (MAC) protocol for the reverse link transmission of a multimedia indoor packet wireless network. The proposed TDMA-based protocol takes account of the harsh indoor radio propagation environments and the quality of service requirements. It combines an extended packet reservation multiple access (E-PRMA) protocol with the reservation ALOHA (R-ALOHA) in order to meet the transmission performance requirements for delay sensitive and error sensitive services respectively. The system throughput and packet dropping probability using the E-PRMA protocol are analyzed for low-rate and high-rate mobile terminals
