Interactive Computing Framework for Engineering Applications
With the technological advances and the popularization of wireless equipment, wireless networks became a viable alternative from the economical point of view. Consequently, more and more Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) are available, including public and private networks, for residential and corporative usage. Hence, the IEEE802.11 WLANs, firstly used for "Best-Effort" type traffic mainly, now need to manage real time audio and video applications. So, it is of fundamental importance to find solutions that allow these networks to become more reliable and able to adequately manage multimedia traffic.
