E-MAC: Self-Organizing 802.11-Compatible MAC with Elastic Real-time Scheduling

Abstract

To overcome the lack of strict QoS guarantees in existing hotspots, in this paper we present a system for realtime traffic support in 802.11 networks that works in either infrastructure or ad-hoc mode. The proposed mechanism, called elastic MAC (E-MAC) protocol, helps stations with real-time traffic to organize and establish a transmission schedule in a… (More)
