Quality of Service for Wireless Links
Real time network applications such as voice over IP and video streaming make critical time and throughput demands of networks. Wireless networks have particular difficulty in meeting these demands with typically lower bandwidth and higher packet loss than wired networks. I am looking at what methods can be used to ensure quality of service is maintained for different traffic classes on wireless networks. This includes MAC level solutions where the radio medium is contended and IP level solutions where data throughput is contended across a number of nodes.
