An Approach to Enhance the Timeliness of Wireless Communications
Wireless technologies are the present and the future of network communications. However, the support of real-time data transmission in wireless communications - providing support for execution of well-timed networked operations - is still an open issue, not fully addressed by current wireless network standards and technologies. Thus, this paper proposes a solution to enhance the timeliness of wireless communications without a need for fundamental modifications to the standard specifications. The IEEE 802.15.4 wireless network is used as a relevant case study.
