In this letter, we propose a new QoS scheduling algorithm, referred to as the explicit traffic aware scheduling algorithm with explicit queue length notification (ETA-EQN), which aims at supporting multimedia services in HCCA of IEEE 802.11e WLAN. The results from intensive simulations with NS-2 verify that ETA-EQN provides much better network performance than the reference scheduler in terms of throughput, delay, and packet loss.
