- Display Note: Abstract: We design an optimal access point (AP) selection and traffic allocation algorithm for IEEE 802.11 networks. Coverage and capacity are some key issues when selecting APs in a demand area. APs need to cover all users, i.e., a user is considered covered if the power received from its corresponding AP is greater than a given threshold. Moreover, from a capacity standpoint, APs need to provide certain bandwidth to users located in the coverage area. Our optimization balances the load on the entire network whereby demand clusters will not necessarily select the closest AP that has the largest signal level but one that can still service the demand cluster and provide ample bandwidth.
