Multimedia applications are supported by enhancing polling mechanisms to achieve Quality of Service, QoS, in the IEEE 802 MAC layer. We first briefly introduce the problems of reliability and efficiency with the basic polling medium access, particularly in highly loaded environments. A novel mechanism, Registered Polling is then described in details. The proposed mechanism provides a simple and efficient channel for implicit information update on traffic conditions. Based on these updates, it… CONTINUE READING
