Abstract

Future wireless networks must be able to support Quality of Service (QoS) requirements of emerging 5G and other next-generation applications. REACT is a distributed resource allocation protocol can be used to negotiate airtime among nodes in a wireless network. In this paper, REACT is extended to support QoS airtime. Experimentation on the w-iLab.t wireless testbed in an ad hoc setting shows that these extensions allow REACT to converge on allocations where any node requesting the higher class of airtime receives its allocation, while nodes requesting the lower class are allocated remaining airtime fairly.
