Improvement on QoS Routing for IEEE 802.11 Wireless Network

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 163)


The existing ad hoc network routing is based on the QoS routing and destination address of the reserved resources, the source node when the node has the same purpose for the establishment of two or more real-time traffic, will result in several data flows compete for resources, making several streams QoS cannot be guaranteed. For this problem, this paper presents flow-based QoS routing mechanisms, and conducted a simulation analysis, simulation results show that this mechanism can solve this problem so that QoS be effectively guaranteed.
