The protocol of wireless LAN —IEEE 802.11 put forward DCF/PCF to offer the real time transmission, but it did not meet the need of multimedia transmission, so a new MAC protocol is developed to solve this problem. In this paper we discuss the way of implementing and processing the multimedia data streams in WLAN. We regard the transmission of multimedia as multi-channel accessing with synchronization to study it. We start from the parameter QoS and mapped the multimedia transmission data streams to the different priorities, and use negotiation approach to allocate the resource.
