Parsimonious Traffic-Descriptor for QoS Routing Decisions in Bluetooth Network
Traffics from real-time, high-speed, multimedia, and interactive applications are bursty and are known to associate with self-similar property. It has a direct impact on network performance. Link characteristics may also contribute to the network performance, particularly when routing decisions are to be made at a router node to select its forwarding link. Therefore, if the source traffic and the link quality can be precisely characterized for resource allocation and reservation at the time of routing, a better level of QoS guarantee could then be granted to user applications in a resource-limited Bluetooth ad hoc network.
