There are two essential ingredients in order for any telecommunications system to be able to provide Quality-of-Service (QoS) guarantees: connection admission control (CAC) and service differentiation. In wireless local area networks (WLANs), it is essential to carry out these functions at the MAC level. The original version of IEEE 802.11 medium access(More)
The WAVE (Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments) concept includes seven channels within the DSRC band. One of them, known as the Control Channel (CCH), is the one used to exchange all safety-related messages. Messages sent over the CCH have to be processed with different priorities depending on how critical they are for vehicle safety. However, the MAC(More)
Virtual environments (VEs) are interactive computer simulations that immerse users in an alternate reality. Distributed VE (DVE) applications simulate the experience of real-time interaction among multiple users in a shared three-dimensional (3-D) virtual world. In this paper, we identify the network service requirements for highly interactive DVEs and show(More)
