Wireless local area nerworks (WLANs) are increasingly finding applications that include real time traffic like voice over IP (VoIP). Medium access coordination function for WLANs in IEEE 802.11 basically implements medium access control (MAC) by employing distributed coordination function (DCF). IEEE 802.11 WLANs provide limited support for quality of service (QoS). A new standard, namely IEEE 802.11e, defines MAC procedure to support QoS requirements of applications. IEEE 802.11e introduces… CONTINUE READING
