This paper presents how enhanced Quality of Service (QoS) in IEEE802.11e is achieved by providing traffics with different priorities performing the access to the wireless medium. Particularly, the EDCF set of parameters defines the priorities of the admission control mechanism during the Contention-based Period (CP). This can subsequently be declined to a variation of network dynamicity. Reliability analysis of different traffic classes (video, voice and data), without considering both network

Being based upon scenarios, our proposed approach reveals how the behaviour of the service differentiation scheme is greatly affected according to the nodes' mobility (position and velocity). Thus, three levels (Low, Medium, and High) of node's speed are discerned. Depending on the Access Aategories (AC's) in QoS Stations (QSAT's), the Wireless LAN has been implemented on various static and dynamic scenarios using NS-2. Performance of EDCF based on the main MAC-layer metrics, such as throughput, End-2-End delay and jitter, is deeply investigated.
