The worldwide popularity of wireless local area networks (WLANs) calls for efficient solutions in scheduling multimedia (voice, data, and video) traffic transmissions. Enhanced distributed channel access (EDCA), which is the contention-based channel access function of IEEE 802.11e, is unable to guarantee priority access to higher priority traffic in the presence of significant traffic loads from low-priority users. In this paper, we propose the use of a token- and self-policing-based scheduling scheme, which not only addresses this problem but also prevents bursty video nodes from overusing the medium and tackles the problem of idle time due to large transmission opportunities (TXOPs).
