Multimedia services over resource constrained Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) face a performance bottleneck issue from the gateway node to the sink node. Therefore, the queue management at the gateway node is crucial for diversified messages conveyed from the front nodes to the sink node. In this paper, Beacon Order-Based Random Early Detection (BOB-RED) queue management is proposed. BOB-RED is a dynamic adaptation scheme based on adjusting beacon interval and superframe duration in the IEEE 802.15.4 MAC superframe accompanied with RED queue management scheme to increase the transmission efficiency of multimedia over WSNs. They focus on the performance improvement upon different traffic loads over WSNs.
