|Abstract:||IEEE 802.11 standard for wireless networks recently has been enhanced with IEEE 802.11e amendment to this protocol which introduces Quality of Service support. It provides differentiation mechanisms at the Medium Access Control layer, using two additional access functions: the Enhanced Distributed Channel Access (EDCA) function and the HCF Controlled Channel Access (HCCA) function. The EDCA function is based on a distributed control and enables prioritized channel access while the latter requires centralized scheduling and allows the applications to negotiate parameterized service guarantees. Only HCCA mechanism is suitable for serving traffic streams with real-time requirements such as multimedia applications and Voice Over IP. The IEEE 802.11e standard does not specify a mandatory HCCA scheduling algorithm, while it offers a reference scheduler. In this paper we analyze four HCCA schedulers which are alternative to the reference one and which offer real-time guarantees. A performance evaluation through simulation is conducted to show the main differences between the considered schedulers, including the reference one.|
