Extending EDCA with Distributed Resource Reservation for QoS Guarantees
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: Telecommunication Systems
In this paper we describe how the contention-based medium access mechanism of 802.11e, EDCA, can be enhanced in order to allow stations to reserve medium access for their real-time applications with QoS requirements. We present our proposed scheme, which is called EDCA with resource reservation (EDCA/RR), and describe how it can be extended in order to be used in wireless multi-hop networks. EDCA/RR operates in a completely distributed manner and manages to provide deterministic, contention-free medium access, making it an attractive scheme for wireless networks.
