— Current rate adaptation schemes for 802.11 exhibit sudden and severe drops in throughput in real application scenarios. Although there have been several propositions to remedy such rate adaptation failures, there has not been a thorough analysis of the causes that lead to such a " Snowball Effect. " This paper provides an analysis of the factors that lead(More)
—We propose a distributed cross-layer congestion control algorithm that provides enhanced QoS and reliable operation for real-time uplink video over WiFi applications. Such applications are characterized by many wireless devices transmitting video at various PHY rates over a relatively congested channel. Unfortunately, today's off-the-shelf 802.11 equipment(More)
In this paper, we introduce a peer-to-peer sensor network (P2PWSNDAS) architecture with pipelined time division scheduling for sensor data acquisition from an ad hoc wireless sensor network (WSN). P2PWSNDAS takes a service-oriented, data-centric view of the deployed WSN. The wireless sensors that constitute the WSN measure physical attributes of the(More)
