Uplink Traffic Control in Home 802.11 Wireless Networks

IEEE 802.11 wireless networks become increasingly more complex and interesting inside homes. A number of home automation, home security, and entertainment products rely on wireless technologies for easy deployment without the need for wiring. Moreover, a number of such applications are fundamentally changing the traffic mix of a home wireless network, resulting in uplink traffic that is not only triggered by the users but that could potentially be nearly continuous in nature, such as wireless home security products, where each individual camera is likely to stream large amounts of data in high traffic areas.
