The regularity of inter-service time is essential for processing real-time traffic in wireless networks. Bounding the size of inter-service time for every single user is a precondition to support the normal operating of the network. Motivated by this, we design a framework for inter-service time guaranteed scheduling. We first define a new capacity region of networks with a strict inter-service time constraint. Then we propose a novel scheduling policy that is throughput-optimal and guarantees a bounded inter-service time for every user. Simulation results shows the policy performs well on inter-service time and throughput.
