In this paper, we propose and analyze a wireless MAC protocol named APRMA, which is capable of supporting the ABR type data service and maximizing channel utilization. In original PRMA protocol, data terminals cannot reserve slot. So several types of schemes for supporting data traffiic, but most of them are too complicate to implement. So we propose an efficient and simple MAC protocol for wireless communication. In this study, the terminal which wants to request for ABR type service, acquires a minimum bandwidth from system for the first time. If the system have extra available bandwidth, ABR terminals would acquire additional bandwidth slot by slot. As a result, APRMA protocol can support the data service with loss sensitivity and maintain their channel utilization highly. Also high priority services like voice can be satisfied with their QoS by APRMA.
