Rate Switching in 802.11e, dude from Toshiba
Currently, it is impossible to change the transmission rate during a burst because of Block ACK
4 algorithms proposed to solve the problem
1) link adaptation algorithm for Block ACK
Change and compare ratio of change of rate within a burst
2) Reduce the burst size
4) A tail data packet with a higher rate is attached in every burst

Problem: 802.11 suffers from downlink throughput degradation when uplink traffic increases, cause: AP must transmit all downlink traffic and acquires the channel with the same probability as a single station, therefore to solve the prob, a new scheme is needed.
Solution: In the proposed scheme the AP has a single CSMA/CA function, this lowers prob of collision.
Proposed Scheme compared to DCF and Multiple CSMA/CA
After 26 station Multiple CSMA throughput drops
DCF and proposed scheme seem better, DCF drops off at 50

Current Frame burst handling of frame errors not efficient
Dymanic Queue prioritizing proposed.
Results show that after 30 stations, throughput decreases more in normal round robin than the proposed queue prioritization
