A Novel Collision Probability Based Adaptive Contention Windows Adjustment for QoS Fairness on Ad Hoc Wireless Networks
Source: University of Otago
It is crucial to achieve Quality of Service (QoS) on IEEE802.11 in order to provide stable and reliable communication for real time and multimedia applications. Most of the recent QoS techniques for Ad Hoc Networks rely on basic QoS classifications such as Enhanced Distributed Channel Access (EDCA) and Hybrid Coordination Function Channel Access (HCCA) with stationary back-off range for specific services, without considering overall resource consumption and the external correlation among terminals. In this paper, a novel contention window adjustment QoS scheme, as a special case of QoS classification, is proposed for achieving QoS-fairness on Ad Hoc Networks.
