An alternative WLAN protocol which could be adapted in the HCF access scheme defined by IEEE 802.11e, in place of the HCCA mechanism, is introduced. LEPOAC-QG (Low Energy Priority Oriented Adaptive Control with QoS Guarantee) is a centralized access mechanism that supports low energy consumption, guarantees QoS for all types of multimedia network applications, enhances the parameterized traffic with priorities, and supports time division access. It instantly negotiates the quality levels of the
