Estimation of Medium Access Control Layer Packet Delay Distribution for IEEE 802.11
The most important standard in wireless local area networks is IEEE 802.11. This is why much of the paper for the enhancement of wireless network is usually based on the behavior of IEEE 802.11 protocol. However, some of the ways in which IEEE 802.11 medium access control layer behaves is still unreliable to guarantee quality of service. For instance, medium access control layer packet delay, jitter and packet loss rate still remain a challenge. This paper is to propose an accurate estimation of the medium access control layer packet delay distribution for IEEE 802.11.
