wmm edca-client (SSID profile view)

wmm edca-client (SSID profile view)

Function

The wmm edca-client command configures EDCA parameters for STAs.

The undo wmm edca-client command restores the default EDCA parameter settings of STAs.

Table 11-152 lists the default EDCA parameter settings for STAs.

Packet Type ECWmax ECWmin AIFSN TXOPLimit
AC_VO 3 2 2 47
AC_VI 4 3 2 94
AC_BE 10 4 3 0
AC_BK 10 4 7 0

Format

wmm edca-client { ac-vo | ac-vi | ac-be | ac-bk } { aifsn aifsn-value | ecw ecwmin ecwmin-value ecwmax ecwmax-value | txoplimit txoplimit-value } *

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 arbitration inter frame spacing number (AIFSN), which determines the channel idle time.

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

ecwmin ecwmin-value

Specifies the exponent form of the minimum contention window. ecwmin-value and ecwmax-value determine the average backoff time.

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

ecwmax ecwmax-value

Specifies the exponent form of the maximum contention window. ecwmin-value and ecwmax-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 transmission opportunity limit (TXOPLimit), which determines the maximum duration in which a STA can occupy a channel. A larger TXOPLimit value indicates a longer duration to occupy a channel.

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

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

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 differentiated priorities to the packets and different capabilities to compete for channels. In this way, differentiated services are implemented.

Table 11-153 describes the EDCA parameters.
Table 11-153  EDCA parameter description

Parameter

Meaning

Arbitration Interframe Spacing Number (AIFSN)

The DIFS has a fixed value. WMM provides different DIFS values for different ACs. A large AIFSN value means that the STA must wait for a long time and has a low priority.

Exponent form of CWmin (ECWmin) and exponent form of CWmax (ECWmax)

ECWmin specifies the minimum backoff time, and ECWmax specifies the maximum backoff time. Together, they determine the average backoff time. Large ECWmin and ECWmax values mean a long average backoff time for the STA and a low STA priority.

Transmission Opportunity Limit (TXOPLimit)

After preempting a channel, the STA can occupy the channel within the period of TXOPLimit. A large TXOPLimit value means that the STA can occupy the channel for a long time. If the TXOPLimit value is 0, the STA can only send one data frame every time it preempts a channel.

Precautions

  • The EDCA parameters configured for the four AC queues take effect only after the WMM function is enabled using the undo wmm disable command.
  • 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 11-154 lists the reference EDCA parameter settings and ACK policies for APs in voice scenarios.
      Table 11-154  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 11-155 lists the reference EDCA parameter settings and ACK policies for APs in voice and video scenarios.
      Table 11-155  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.

Example

# Set EDCA parameters for AC_VO packets of STAs in SSID profile p1.

[HUAWEI-wlan-view] ssid-profile name p1
