Abstract

See full text

A method for scheduling packets in a wireless local area network begins by mapping a packet to an access category (AC) based on a user priority of the packet. The packet is assigned to a traffic flow (TF) in a station based on the AC of the packet. A packet from the TF is placed into a transmission queue for the AC. A packet from the transmission queue is selected based on a quality of service-based contention resolution function, and the selected packet is transmitted.
