Among several wireless network scenarios, the in-home environment is one of the most challenging research areas in recent years. In particular, the Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs) seem to be one of the most interesting application scenarios, as it works in small area for delivering multimedia traffic. The IEEE 802.15.3 is the emerging standard for WPAN. This standard is designed to provide low complexity, low cost and low power-consumption for personal area networks that manage multimedia traffic, video and audio between different devices in a small area environment. This paper deals with an adaptive management technique at the Medium Access Control (MAC) layer technique for high data-rate WPANs. The proposed system aims to maximize the performance of the WPAN in terms of throughput, considering multimedia traffic, constituted by data and video traffic.
