How to squeeze more performance out of your wifi

Achim Friedland

Most of today's long-range wireless mesh or point-to-point links suffer from a high overhead during channel access, frequent link failtures and the lack of taking a real advantage of the mesh network structure. This leads to a really bad performance for TCP-like traffic compared to UDP traffic over this links. We want to present your two different ideas for optimizing throughput and delay without breaking any wifi-standard (or at least not too much ;).
