IEEE 802.11 based WLANs have been widely deployed. Currently research is concentrating on how to find the best location for these access points plus tuning their antennas in order to seamlessly cover large areas. With more and more WLAN users, the air interface acts as bottleneck even in high-speed WLAN systems such as IEEE 802.11a. To improve the overall performance of IEEE 802.11 WLAN systems under congestion conditions, an agent-based radio resource management system is proposed that can dynamically change an AP's radio coverage pattern in cooperation with surrounding APs. A low-cost four sector semismart antenna array is used for access points. In this paper we present results from a simulation showing system performance. The use of intelligent agents and negotiations for indoor radio resource management is presented and discussed.
