Recent times have seen a tremendous surge of multimedia traffic over the Wireless Local Area Networks or (WLANs). However, the bandwidth intensive multimedia traffic takes the most brunt when a WLAN is overloaded. Longer packet delay, jitter and lower throughput deteriorate the video quality significantly at the receiving end, thus diminishing the user experience. In this paper, the authors implement a new scheme to guarantee Quality of Service (QoS) for resource intensive traffic such as video even in times of resource scarcity in the network.
