This paper presents a simulation-based study of a MAC protocol, named Contention Free Bursting (also referred to as Enhanced Distributed Coordination Function (EDCF) Bursting) described as an optional mode of operation in 802.11e WLAN networks. A simple recovery mechanism is proposed upon transmission failure during the burst. The new scheme aims to provide better Quality of Service when high throughput applications operate in the presence of low throughput, latencysensitive applications.
