IEEE 802.11 Latency

Hi all,

does 802.11 or 802.11g respectively specifiy any max. latency? I am talking packet transport time through the WLAN stack, not handover latency.

Any hints welcome.

Thanks in advance! radiwi

I presume you're talking about a maximum latency through the MAC layers, not the IP layers. I don't think there's such a specification, but I'm too lazy to look through the docs. In IEEE802.11-1999, on page 205, there is Table 59, which details some of the typical direct sequence packet timing values. These were modified in 802.11g.

I suspect there are maximum lantency specifications for 802.11e (QoS) and for VoIP applications.
