    This article investigates the issue of determining an appropriate pricing strategy for voice over WLAN provisioning. This is performed by first framing the voice services in a tunable QoS scenario. The analysis is then performed with the awareness that in a WLAN system the tariff payment determines price-based access regulation, which implies a different service perception because of the modified ...

    This article investigates and provides novel solutions for a new research avenue to support QoS in contention-based distributed WLANs. Although QoS is easier to manage in centrally controlled and reservation-based MAC protocols, they are hardly implemented in today's products due to several reasons, such as their higher complexity and their inefficiency for normal data transmissions, lack of robus...

    In this article we present a survey of different polling-based protocols for supporting voice over IEEE 802.11 wireless local area networks (WLANs). In particular, three key issues are discussed: managing a polling list, determining the polling sequence, and reducing polling overhead. These discussions motivate the proposal of an isochronous coordination function (ICF) for transporting voice packe... View full abstract»

    Motivated by the promising voice over IP technology and the wide service availability of WLANs, the application of voice over WLAN (VoWLAN) is expected to experience dramatic growth in the near future. Originally designed for high-rate data traffic, WLANs may experience bandwidth inefficiency when supporting delay-sensitive and low-rate voice traffic. This article proposes mechanisms to enhance Qo... View full abstract»

    Recent years have seen greatly increasing interests in voice over IP in wireless LANs, in which the IEEE 802.11 distributed coordination function protocol or enhanced DCF protocol is used. However, since both DCF and EDCF are contention-based medium access control protocols, it is difficult for them to support the strict QoS requirement for VoIP. Therefore, in this article we propose a novel call ... View full abstract»

    In this article a call admission control framework is presented for voice over wireless local area networks (WLANs). The framework, called WLAN voice manager, manages admission control for voice over IP (VoIP) calls with WLANs as the access networks. WLAN voice manager interacts with WLAN medium access control (MAC) layer protocols, soft-switches (VoIP call agents), routers, and other network devi... View full abstract»
