Paper Abstract

The application of the IEEE 802.11 access protocol for wireless local area networks (WLAN) to an ATM wireless environment is considered with the aim to support ATM virtual connections. Two different schemes are considered to perform cell multiplexing in MAC frames. The proposed solutions are suitably discussed and evaluated by means of simulation in a multiservice environment with data and video traffic. The effect of the presence of fading in the communication channel is also taken into account.
