This work presents a new scheme which exploits differentiations of both inter frame space (IFS) and contention window (CW) to achieve weighted fairness for two classes of services under enhanced distributed channel access (EDCA) mode in an 802.11e WLAN. Given the arbitration IFSs (AIFSs), the proposed scheme can properly set the corresponding CWs such that the ratio of the two classes' successful transmission probabilities can attain a pre-defined weighted-fairness goal. Additionally, the throughput and delay of the two classes of services are derived. The simulation results compare well with the analytical results. Also, the analytical results illustrate that the proposed scheme can achieve a fairness index very close to 1 and attain a greater aggregate throughput with lower collision probability than the CW differentiation scheme presented in A. Banchs and X. Perez (2002), for a specified weighted-fairness goal.
