Abstract : Quality of service (QoS) is a key problem in wireless environments where bandwidth is scarce and channel conditions are time varying and sometimes implies highly packet losses. IEEE 802.11b/g/a wireless LAN (WLAN) are the most widely used WLAN standards today, and the IEEE 802.11e QoS enhancement standard exists and introduces QoS support for multimedia applications. This paper presents an admission control algorithm for 802.11e based wireless local area networks . The strengths of our admission control is dynamicity and flexibility of the algorithm, which adapts to the situation of the BSS, like global load, number of best effort AC, and position of QSTA by report of QAP. Thus it achieves higher throughput than other admission control for 802.11e. The 802.lie standard starves the low priority traffic in case of high load, and leads to higher collision rates, and did not make a good estimate of weight of queues, so there is an unbalance enters the flows with high priorities. A discussion is presented in detail using simulation-based evaluations, with an aim of comparing results of our admission control algorithm, with the 802.11e standard and the FHCF algorithm. Results reveal an improvement of the network load and a decrease of the number of collisions.Dynamic Admission Control Algorithm for WLANs 802.11.
