This paper proposes data and voice scheduling algorithms for the Dynamic Reservation Time Division Multiple Access (DR-TDMA) MAC protocol for wireless ATM networks. Featuring a novel framed pseudo-Bayesian priority Aloha algorithm that provides access priority to voice control packets, DR-TDMA improves the Quality-of-Service offered to voice connections and increases the maximum throughput for integrated voice and data traffic. The DR-TDMA protocol can also be extended to integrate Constant Bit
