Voice capacity under quality constraints for IEEE 802.11a based WLANs
The communication of voice over wireless local area networks (WLANs) is influenced by the choice of speech codec, packetization interval and PHY layer bit rates. These choices affect the number of voice users that can be supported on the WLAN as well as the speech quality experienced by each user. We investigate the effect of different combinations of these parameters for a 802.11a WLAN in different channel conditions with the objective of maximizing the number of voice users supported on the WLAN subject to a quality constraint. We use an indicator for assessing the speech quality experienced by a single user in a WLAN, based on a Perceptual Evaluation of Speech Quality (PESQ)-Mean Opinion Score (MOS) constraint and the probability of a voice user achieving this constraint. The contributions of this paper are three-fold. First, a PHY layer rate adaptation scheme is proposed, in which the operating rate for each Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) is chosen as the one that maximizes the ...
