Results are drawn for default values of CWmin and CWmax which are (-1) for IEEE 802.11e standard.
EDCA of IEEE 802.11e [2] standard defines four access categories corresponding to voice, video, best effort, and background to endow different applications with diverse priorities in media access control.
IEEE 802.11e first provided QoS for WLANs by the Enhanced Distributed Channel Access (EDCA) and Hybrid Controlled Channel Access (HCCA) mechanism.
More specifically, we show that Hotspot 2.0 devices supporting the 802.11u standard or devices that incorrectly handle 802.11e Block Acknowledgements (BAs) frames can be actively probed, so that their presence is unwittingly exposed to a tracking system.
These correspond to the four priorities of traffic in enhanced distributed channel access (EDCA) which is proposed in IEEE 802.11e [19] amendment.
Authors in [7] proposed that the contention window (CW) be proportionate with the transmission rate on the expectation that the CWmin will be a configurable parameter in IEEE 802.11e extension.
It supports the latest 802.11e EDCA standards to ensure seamless video streaming and VoIP services and includes 802.11h Spectrum and Transmit Power Management for improved BER and 802.11k and 11r Radio Resource Measurement/Management.
The IEEE 802.11e (EDCA) admission control mechanism s implemented in this module.
