Abstract

Wireless networks have grown their popularity over the past number of years. Usually wireless networks operate according to IEEE 802.11, which specifies protocols of physical and MAC layers. A number of different studies have been conducted on performance of IEEE 802.11 wireless networks. However, questions of QoS control in such networks have not received sufficient attention from the research community. This paper considers modeling of QoS of IEEE 802.11 networks defined in terms of throughput requirements and packet loss probability limitations. An influence of sizes of packets being transmitted through the network on the QoS is investigated. Extensive simulations confirm results obtained from the mathematical model.
