As the use of WLANs based on IEEE 802.11 increases, the need for QoS becomes more obvious. The new IEEE 802.1 le standard aims at providing QoS, but its contention-based medium access mechanism, EDCA, provides only service differentiation, i.e. soft QoS. In order to provide hard QoS, earlier we have proposed an extension called EDCA with resource reservation (EDCA/RR), which enhances EDCA by offering also hard QoS through resource reservation. In this paper, we extend EDCA/RR to cope with the hidden terminal problem, outline a solution for multi-hop scenarios, and compare the proposed scheme with EDCA.
