Abstract

This paper presents an adaptive encapsulation scheme that significantly improves the effective throughput in 802.11 networks by maximizing the number of IP packets that are encapsulated in a single MAC frame. Encapsulation efficiency is improved by deferring transmissions based on the estimation of packet inter-arrival times and by performing early discarding of packets for which delay violations are anticipated. The scheme supports both real-time and non-real-time traffic types. Simulations indicate that the proposed adaptive encapsulation approach achieves significant throughput improvement over the classic encapsulation approach.
