Evaluation of the performance of the SLoPS: available bandwidth estimation technique in IEEE 802.11b wireless networks

Evaluation des performances de SLOPS : technique d'estimation de la bande passante dans les réseaux sans fil IEEE 802.11b

Abstract

Over the past few years, to actively measure the end-to-end available bandwidth of a network path several algorithms have been created (TOPP, SLoPS, Spurce, VPS ldots). These algorithms are dedicated to wired Ethernet network; however the bandwidth estimation in wireless network field remains a challenge. In the present work we evaluate the performance of Self-Loading Periodic Stream (SLoPS) method to estimate the available bandwidth in the IEEE 802.11b wireless network. By using different probe packet sizes and different Cross-Traffics, we show that the available bandwidth measurements are affected by the varying Cross-Traffic in both Ethernet and wireless IEEE 802.11b network. The variation of probe packet size affects only the available bandwidth measurements in the wireless network and not in Ethernet network case. Also SLoPS technique provides less accurate measurements in the IEEE 802.11b wireless network. The simulation is built in NS-2. The results are analyzed by MatLab software
