A Novel AP for Improving the Performance of Wireless LANs Supporting VoIP
Recently, wireless LANs based on the IEEE 802.11 standard have become popular and widely used, and Voice-over-IP (VoIP) is one of the most promising technologies to be used in mobile devices over wireless networks. Up-to-date, new technologies have improved, providing a high data rate to support various kinds of realtime applications. However, besides the need for higher data rates, seamless handoff is another important issue to be addressed in order to continue supporting real-time services across wireless LANs. In this paper we introduce a novel Access Point (AP) with two transceivers to improve network efficiency in terms of supporting seamless handoff and balancing the traffic load in a wireless network. In our proposed scheme, the novel AP will use the second transceiver to scan and find neighboring STAs in the transmission range and later send the result to its associate AP, which in turn compares and analyzes whether or not the STA should perform a handoff. The initial results f...
