ABSTRACT
This article reports that Wi-Fi Alliance developed a subset of 802.11e called the Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) specification. Makers of wireless access points as well as wireless client devices such as laptops, phones, and consumer electronics products are incorporating support for WMM into their wares. WMM is designed to support consumer and corporate applications and works with all three 802.11 wireless physical layer standards. And the specification provides basic prioritization of data packets based on four categories, voice, video, best effort, and background.
