A heavy deployment of IEEE 802.11 Wireless LANs and limited number of orthogonal channels make lots of Access Points (APs) overlap their interference regions, which greatly increases interferences between APs and stations. In order to cope with the performance degradation caused by the interferences, we propose Co-Fi, a centralized Wi-Fi architecture that effectively coordinates downlink transmissions by APs and improves network performance in terms of throughput and end-to-end delay. Co-Fi… CONTINUE READING
