Abstract

Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) has been greatly developed for the last twenty years. Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) in high-dense deployment scenario greatly challenges the next-generation WLAN [1]. To address this challenge, researchers proposed channel reservation mechanism for WLAN, but the premise of channel reservation mechanism is to know the next packets exact arrival time. This assumption is impractical since the next packets arrival time is a stochastic process. In order to solve the above problem, this paper proposes an arrival prediction based channel reservation media access control (MAC) for the next generation WLAN. Simulations show that the protocol can reduce the network collisions generated by concurrency to a certain extent and improve network throughput.
