Ad hoc wireless networks with their widespread deployment, now need to support applications that generate multimedia and real-time traffic. Video, audio, real-time voice over IP, and other multimedia applications require the network to provide guarantees on the Quality of Service (QoS) of the connection. The 802.11 e Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol was proposed with the aim of providing QoS support at the MAC layer. The 802.11 e performs well in wireless LANs due to the presence of Access Points (APs), but in ad ...
