Bandwidth adaptation (BA) mechanisms provide an effective solution for handling congestion in wireless multimedia networks. Several factors go into the design of a bandwidth adaptation mechanism. In this paper, we investigate some of these factors and study their effect on the performance of bandwidth adaptation mechanisms. A simple model was proposed to help us with our study. Simulation results show that each of the studied factors can positively affect the performance of bandwidth adaptation mechanisms in certain scenarios.
