wmm edca-ap

wmm edca-ap

Function

The wmm edca-ap command sets EDCA parameters and ACK policies for an AP.

The undo wmm edca-ap command restores the default EDCA parameters and ACK policies for an AP.

Table 27-17 lists the default EDCA parameter settings and ACK policies for APs.

AC_VO 3 2 1 47 normal
AC_VI 4 3 1 94 normal
AC_BE 6 4 3 0 normal

Format

wmm edca-ap { ac-vo | ac-vi | ac-be | ac-bk } { aifsn aifsn-value | ecw ecwmin ecwmin-value ecwmax ecwmax-value | txoplimit txoplimit-value | ack-policy { normal | noack } } *

undo wmm edca-ap

Parameters

Parameter

Description

Value

ac-vo

Indicates AC_VO packets.

-

ac-vi

Indicates AC_VI packets.

-

ac-be

Indicates AC_BE packets.

-

ac-bk

Indicates AC_BK packets.

-

aifsn aifsn-value

Specifies the AIFSN, which determines the channel idle time.

The value is an integer that ranges from 1 to 15.

ecwmin ecwmin-value

Specifies the ecwmin-value. ecwmin-value and ecwmax-value determine the average backoff time.

The value is an integer that ranges from 0 to 15 and be smaller than or equal to the ecwmax-value value.

ecwmax ecwmax-value

Specifies the ecwmax-value. ecwmax-value and ecwmin-value determine the average backoff time.

The value is an integer that ranges from 0 to 15 and must be greater than or equal to the ecwmin-value value.

txoplimit txoplimit-value

Specifies the txoplimit-value. The value determines the maximum duration in which an AP or a STA can occupy a channel. A larger txoplimit-value value indicates a longer duration to occupy a channel.

The value is an integer that ranges from 0 to 255. The unit is 32 microseconds.
NOTE:

If the txoplimit-value value is 0, the STA can send only one data frame every time it occupies a channel.

ack-policy { normal | noack }

Specifies an ACK policy.
  • normal: During 802.11 packet exchange, The receiver must return an ACK packet each time it receives a packet from the sender.
  • noack: The receiver does not need to send an ACK message when it receives a packet from the sender. Configure this parameter only in the good air interface environment. Otherwise, severe packet loss occurs.

Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

WMM classifies data packets into the following access categories (ACs): AC_VO, AC_VI, AC_BE, and AC_BK. A set of EDCA parameters is set for each AC queue. These parameters determine the capabilities of a queue to occupy a channel. You can set EDCA parameters for packets of different ACs to provide different priorities to the packets. In this way, APs have different capabilities to compete for channels and provide differentiated services.

Precautions

  • The EDCA parameters configured for the four AC queues take effect only after the WMM function is enabled. By default, the WMM function is enabled in a 2G or 5G radio profile.
  • By default, queues of AC_VO, AC_VI, AC_BE, and AC_BK are in descending order of priority. Priorities of the four queues are determined by their EDCA parameters.
  • EDCA parameters must be configured properly. The scenarios for the reference EDCA parameter settings and ACK policies are as follows:
    1. Table 27-18 lists the reference EDCA parameter settings and ACK policies for APs in voice scenarios.
      Table 27-18  Reference EDCA parameter settings and ACK policies for APs in voice scenarios
      Packet Type ECWmax ECWmin AIFSN TXOPLimit ACK Policy
      AC_VO 4 2 2 0 normal
      AC_VI 5 3 5 0 normal
      AC_BE 10 6 5 0 normal
      AC_BK 10 8 12 0 normal
    2. Table 27-19 lists the reference EDCA parameter settings and ACK policies for APs in voice and video scenarios.
      Table 27-19  Reference EDCA parameter settings and ACK policies for APs in voice and video scenarios
      Packet Type ECWmax ECWmin AIFSN TXOPLimit ACK Policy
      AC_VO 4 2 2 0 normal
      AC_VI 5 3 5 0 normal
      AC_BE 10 6 12 0 normal
      AC_BK 10 8 12 0 normal
    3. In high-density scenarios, it is recommended that you run the dynamic-edca enable command to enable dynamic EDCA parameter adjustment.
    4. For other scenarios, the default settings are recommended.
