Description

This command configures an EDCAEnhanced Distributed Channel Access. The EDCA function in the IEEE 802.11e Quality of Service standard supports differentiated and distributed access to wireless medium based on traffic priority and Access Category types. See WMM and WME. profile for APs or for clients (stations).

Syntax

Default

<profile-name>

Name of this instance of the profile. The name must be 1-63 characters.

default

background

Configures the background queue.

best-effort

Configures the best-effort queue.

clone

Name of an existing EDCAEnhanced Distributed Channel Access. The EDCA function in the IEEE 802.11e Quality of Service standard supports differentiated and distributed access to wireless medium based on traffic priority and Access Category types. See WMM and WME. profile from which parameter values are copied.

no

Remove or negate a parameter.

video

Configures the video queue.

voice

Configures the voice queue.

acm

Specifies mandatory admission control. The client reserves the ACAccess Category. As per the IEEE 802.11e standards, AC refers to various levels of traffic prioritization in Enhanced Distributed Channel Access (EDCA) operation mode. The WLAN applications prioritize traffic based on the Background, Best Effort, Video, and Voice access categories. AC can also refer to Alternating Current, a form of electric energy that flows when the appliances are plugged to a wall socket. through TSPECTraffic Specification. TSPEC allows an 802.11e client or a QoS-capable wireless client to signal its traffic requirements to the AP. signaling. Enter 1 to enable, 0 to disable.

ecw-max

The exponential (n) value of the maximum contention window size, as expressed by 2n-1. A value of 4 computes to 24-1 = 15.

1-15

0

ecw-min

The exponential (n) value of the minimum contention window size, as expressed by 2n-1. A value of 4 computes to 24-1 = 15.

txop

TXOPTransmission Opportunity. TXOP is used in wireless networks supporting the IEEE 802.11e Quality of Service (QoS) standard. Used in both EDCA and HCF Controlled Channel Access modes of operation, TXOP is a bounded time interval in which stations supporting QoS are permitted to transfer a series of frames. TXOP is defined by a start time and a maximum duration. in units of 32 microseconds. Divide the desired transmission duration by 32 to determine the value to configure. For example, for a transmission duration of 3008 microseconds, enter 94 (3008/32).
