Abstract

Capacity estimation is a key component of any admission control scheme required to support quality of serviceprovision in mobile ad hoc networks. A range of schemes have been previously proposed to estimate residualcapacity that is derived from window-based measurements of channel estimation. In this paper a simple and improvedmechanism to estimate residual capacity in IEEE802.11-based ad hoc networks is presented. The scheme proposesthe use of a ‘forgiveness’ factor to weight these previous measurements and is shown through simulation-basedevaluation to provide accurate utilizations estimation and improved residual capacity based admission control.
