Most of the real-time applications require guaranteed QoS during transmission. Mobile Ad hoc network is an infrastructure less network in which the parameters like mobility, limited resource, lack of central coordination which affects Quality of Service (QoS). Therefore it is essential to maintain QoS in real-time traffic. This paper presents PRTMAC (Proactive Real Time Medium Access Control) protocol to achieve guaranteed QoS in terms of delay, throughput. It supports QoS by the resource reservation mechanism. Once the resources are reserved, nodes get exclusive access on the resource.
