Wireless LAN Access Points as a Queuing System
2002 (English)In: Proceedings of The Communications and Computer Networks 2002 Conference (CCN 2002), 2002, 463-468 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents a research study of wireless LAN access points for IEEE 802.11b, where we seek to model the access point as a queuing system. The model can be used to compare performance metrics of different wireless LAN access points and to investigate the QoS of specific applications in the presence of a wireless LAN access point. In this paper, we focus on two parameters: the delay introduced by a wireless LAN access point and the average service time required to serve a packet passing through an access point. A major result is an analytic solution for the average service time of a packet in relationship to payload.
