Abstract

The goal of this work is to propose and test a Quality of Service (QoS) provision within the IEEE 802.11 CSMA/CA protocol. The proposed QoS provision divides the network traffic into three distinct classes: normal, urgent, and critical. From the three traffic classes, critical data is transmitted fastest with the highest priority, and then followed by urgent data transmission with the next priority level, and subsequently normal data with the lowest priority level. The prioritization of different data is achieved by assigning different delay times for each class. This research utilizes the network simulation framework NS3 to simulate traffic in order to test performance of the protocol. Our simulation results indicate improvement in transmission of urgent and critical data.
