Performance Evaluation of VoIP over Wireless Local Area Network

Abstract Wireless local area networks (WLANs) have been rapidly developed in recent years. It is used for various applications. VoWLAN, which transmits VoIP data over WLANs, shows its amazing attraction and constitutes one of the most flourishing applications nowadays in WLANs. One of Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) main drawbacks, when compared to wired networks, is that WLANs are less predictable and efficient. Wireless physical medium is harder to be controlled than physical wire. WLAN medium is also unlicensed, and thus susceptible to interferences produced by other devices. Therefore, great effort is being done in order to obtain Quality of Service (QoS) in real-time voice communications using WLANs. This topic has opened plenty of new research lines to upgrade current WLAN standards. In this thesis, a study is carried out for the behavior of new Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols defined in IEEE 802.11e draft standard Enhanced Distributed coordination function EDCF as well as for its subsequent modified versions. The Adaptive Enhanced Distributed coordination function AEDCF, designed to support QoS when providing voice communication services between stations in WLAN. Also presents experimental results obtained from simulations, and compare our results with simulations made using IEEE 802.11 standard MAC. The simulation work was done using NS-2 simulator, with the addition of specific modules for 802.11e. A performance comparison is carried out between the modified MAC scheme and IEEE standard MAC scheme, using Experimental simulation models. It is found that the adaptive technique method not only increases the medium utilization ratio and lowers the collision rate by more than 50%, but also enhances vii the overall throughput by around 20% compared with the basic IEEE 802.11DCF technique.

The Impact of Mixed Multirate ServicesOn Uplink Capacity -Coverage Product inWCDMA Mobile Networks

Abstract The number of mobile service users has been tremendously increased during the last few years, and the types of mobile services are developed from pure voice to data and multimedia services, such as audio/video streaming, e-mail, file transfer, and web browsing. These services have quite different requirements for their quality. 3G WCDMA cellular mobile networks answer this growing demand for these wireless data services. Then it needs to provide a huge capacity and wide area of coverage with acceptable quality of service. Capacity and coverage in WCDMA networks planning are the important issues because they are dependent of each other and related to the services data rate. In this thesis the capacity and coverage of mixed rate services are derived and analyzed. The uplink Capacity Coverage Product (CCP) of mixed rate services is developed by two methods, and three scenarios are assumed. The first method is the exact solution and the second method is the approximate solution. Math lap computer programs are used to get results and curves. Then some parameters affecting the mixed rate CCP are studied and a comparison between the two methods is also performed.The application of CCP in dimensioning and planning of a single service and mixed rate services WCDMA network is presented. A comparison with the conventional planning method is performed.

Online Tuning Pole Placement Controller Based onDiscrete State-Space Technique

Abstract In wireless communication systems the data rate, capacity, coverage, and spectral efficiency; can be enhanced with multi-carrier transmission and multi-antenna, then the overall wireless communication system performance is greatly enhanced by combining OFDM and MIMO schemes, MIMO helps in increasing the throughput where as OFDM spreading out the frequency selective fading channel over many symbols. In this thesis evaluating performance of the system depends on both link and system levels, where the measure of performance is represented in the throughput, cell radius and the effective signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR). It also depends on the employed capacity criterion and it takes into account the impact of adaptive modulation and coding. the worked scenarios start from a link level extending to a system level in 3GPP LTE. To achieve the above a number of tasks followed by observations are carried out. They start by analysis of the equations and a Matlab program is written to calculate the cell edge throughput, cell coverage and DL capacity. After the programs implementation, the multi antenna transmission effect is noted on the arrival throughput when taking into account the modulation technique. When increasing the order of the antenna and the throughput is also increased, but it must be traded off with the probability of error; Coverage has also improved by decreasing the order of the modulation technique. For the system level with different traffic, the overall throughput of the system and the capacity of the network are determined by the number of resource blocks (RBs). These RBs depend on the bit rate of the service and bit rate for each RB. The adopted scenarios in this thesis start from link to system, where the features are represented in a flexible base station and user configurations, channel modeling with path loss, user mobility, also at different transmitter and receiver (MIMO). The approaches are useful in single user and multi-user MIMO, then all of the above can be standardized by metrics: capacity, throughput, spectral efficiency, user QoS etc. Finally thesis conclusion and some future work as an extension of this work are presented.
