Abstract

IEEE 802. 11 wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) have become more and more popular due to easy to deployment and lower cost. It can only provide a best effort service and do not have quality of service (QoS) support for real time (RT) traffic. The IEEE Task Group has been proposed a new standard IEEE 802. 11e[1] to address this MAC-layer QoS issue of WLAN. In this paper we proposed a new service differentiation mechanism for admission control in the MAC layer of WLAN for enhancing the QoS.
