Providing Statistical Delay Guarantees in Wireless Networks Conference Paper uri icon


  • This work studies the delay performance of policed traffic to provide real-time guarantees over wireless networks. A number of models have been presented in the literature to describe wireless (radio or optical) networks in terms of the wireless channel and the underlying error control mechanisms. In this paper, we describe a general framework to incorporate such models into delay guarantee computations for real-time traffic. Static-priority scheduling is considered, and two different admission control mechanisms are used to achieve the trade-off between resource utilization and admission overhead.
