This paper carried out a study on the bandwidth request for real-time polling services. In our study, we discovered that although the base station granted the subscriber station an allocation to send the bandwidth request, the subscriber station may not be able to allocate the bandwidth request to the allocation. It is due to processing delay and multicast polling in the subscriber station, which results the bandwidth request being padded unintentionally. The loss of bandwidth requests will cause the degradation of the real-time polling service performance. Therefore, we propose a scheme to overcome this problem. The results of the experiment show that the proposed scheme improves the performance of real-time polling services.
