Providing QoS Guarantees in Ad Hoc Networks through EDCA with Resource Reservation

Hamidian, Ali LU (2006)
Abstract
As the use of WLANs based on IEEE 802.11 increase, the need for QoS becomes more obvious. The upcoming IEEE 802.11e aims at providing QoS, but its contention-based medium access mechanism enhanced distributed channel access (EDCA), provides only service differentiation, i.e. soft QoS. In order to provide hard QoS, we have proposed an

extension called EDCA with resource reservation (EDCA/RR), which enhances EDCA by offering also hard QoS through resource reservation. This report focuses on EDCA/RR with the aim to enhance the scheme further in single-hop scenarios but also to present an idea of how to extend the scheme to be useful also in multi-hop ad hoc networks.
