Buffer Sizing for 802.11 Based Networks.
IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking.
Abstract—We consider the sizing of network buffers in 802.11
based networks.Wireless networks face a number of fundamental
issues that do not arise in wired networks. We demonstrate that
the use of fixed size buffers in 802.11 networks inevitably leads to
either undesirable channel under-utilization or unnecessary high
delays. We present two novel dynamic buffer sizing algorithms
that achieve high throughput while maintaining low delay across
a wide range of network conditions. Experimental measurements
demonstrate the utility of the proposed algorithms in a production
WLAN and a lab testbed.
