Improving Communication Efficiency With Adaptable Transmissions for Uncoordinated WLANs
Campus and enterprise wireless networks are increasingly characterized by ubiquitous coverage and rising traffic demands. Efficiently assigning channels to Access Points (APs) in these networks can significantly affect the performance and capacity of the WLANs. In this paper, the authors show that communication efficiency can be improved significantly with adaptable transmission through multihop routing. First, they fix the data rate to some constant value, i.e., 20 packets/sec then they vary the data rate according to the present network condition. By using Admission control concept they adapt the data rate of the network's data flows.
