With information access becoming more and more ubiquitous, there is a need for providing QoS support for communication that spans wired and wireless networks. For the wired side, RSVP/SBM has been widely accepted as a flow reservation scheme in IEEE 802 style LANs. In this paper, we investigate the integration of RSVP and a RSVP-like flow reservation scheme in wireless LANs, as an end-to-end solution for QoS guarantee in wired-cum-wireless networks. We propose WRESV, an RSVP-like flow reservation and admission control scheme for IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN. Using WRESV, wired/wireless integration can be easily implemented by cross-layer interaction at the Access· Point. Main components of the integration are RSVP-WRESV parameter mapping, and the initiation of new reservation messages, depending on where senders/receivers are located. In addition, we also propose various optimizations for supporting multicast session, mobility management, and admission control.
