We present a centralized integrated approach for: 1) enhancing the performance of an IEEE 802.11 infrastructure wireless local area network (WLAN), and 2) managing the access link that connects the WLAN to the Internet. Our approach, which is implemented on a standard Linux platform, and which we call ADvanced Wi-fi Internet Service EnhanceR (ADWISER), is(More)
We propose a Split MAC (see RFC [1]) architecture based solution to enhance the Quality of Service (QoS) experienced by the wireless nodes in an IEEE 802.11b/e based WLAN. Our proposed solution achieves the objectives of a) providing a fair sharing of the wireless channel time among stations (STAs) while maximizing channel utilization in a situation where(More)
— We have developed SmartConnect, a tool that addresses the growing need for the design and deployment of multihop wireless relay networks for connecting sensors to a control center. Given the locations of the sensors, the traffic that each sensor generates, the quality of service (QoS) requirements, and the potential locations at which relays can be(More)
In the context of the IEEE 802.11e standard for WLANs, we provide an analytical model for obtaining the maximum number of VoIP calls that can be supported on HCCA, such that the delay QoS constraint of the accepted calls is met, when TCP downloads are coexistent on EDCA. In this scenario, we derive the TCP download throughput by using an analytical model(More)
— We are given a set of sensors at given locations, a set of potential locations for placing base stations (BSs, or sinks), and another set of potential locations for placing wireless relay nodes. There is a cost for placing a BS and a cost for placing a relay. The problem we consider is to select a set of BS locations, a set of relay locations, and an(More)
In this paper, we present a generic plug-and-play controller that ensures fair and efficient operation of IEEE 802.11 infrastructure wireless local area networks with multiple co-channel access points, without any change to hardware/firmware of the network devices. Our controller addresses performance issues of TCP transfers in multi-AP WLANs, by overlaying(More)
—We propose distributed link reversal algorithms to circumvent communication voids in geographic routing. We also solve the attendant problem of integer overflow in these algorithms. These are achieved in two steps. First, we derive partial and full link reversal algorithms that are oblivious to one-hop neighbor information, and convert a(More)
