In this paper, we solve the problem of candidate access point selection in 802.11 networks, when there is more than one access point available to a station. We use the QBSS (quality of service enabled basic service set) Load Element of the new WLAN standard 802.11e as prior information and deploy a decision making algorithm based on reinforcement learning.(More)
The new standard IEEE 802.11e targets at enhancing the legacy 802.11 so that QoS management over WLAN standards becomes possible. This is done by the introduction of two new functions, the enhanced distributed channel access (EDCA) and the hybrid coordination function controlled channel access (HCCA) for offering diffserv and intserv functionalities.

In remote parts of Africa, the lack of energy supply, of wired infrastructure , of trained personnel and the limitation in OPEX and CAPEX impose stringent requirements on the network building blocks that support the communication infrastructure. Consequently, in this promising but untapped market, the research aims at designing and implementing(More)
