Abstract

This paper investigates multimedia quality fairness in wireless LAN environments where channel are error-prone due to mobility and fading. The experimental results show that using fixed MAC arguments for nodes in heterogeneous channel conditions leads to unequal throughput performance and that may incur the degradation of multimedia QoS. To overcome the unfairness problem for provisioning QoS, we propose a cross-layer adaptation scheme by on-line adapting the multidimensional MAC-layer backoff parameters depending on the application-layer QoS requirements and PHY-layer channel conditions. Our solution is based on an optimization approach which utilizes neural networks to learn the cross-layer function. Simulation results demonstrate that our adaptive scheme can tackle a variety of channel condition to provide fair throughput for nodes in heterogeneous channel conditions.
