A New Adaptive EDCA Approach to QoS of Wireless Communications
Source: Scientific Research Publishing
Under the background of intelligent transportation application, QoS for various services is different in wireless communication. Based on the MAC layer protocol, this paper analyzes the QoS in IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol framework, and proposes a new design of a Differentiation Enhanced Adaptive EDCA (enhanced distribution channel access) approach. The proposed approach adjusts the window zooming dynamically according to the collision rate in sending data frames, makes random offset, and further distinguishes the competition parameters of the data frames that have the same priority, so as to reduce the conflict among the data frames, and improve the channel utilization.
