ABSTRACT
This paper proposes and analyzes a Running Variance Metric performance measurement of wireless local area networks and its formal aspects. Our approach evaluates the performance of wireless local area networks in infrastructure mode as well as in ad hoc mode. The Running Variance Metric is used to discover relative traffic loads of available access-points/gateways at the network layer in order to provide connectivity to the wired network. The paper discusses a simulation study. The simulation results demonstrate the usefulness and efficiency of the Running Variance Metric to evaluate the utilization of available access-points/gateways. It is also shown that this metric can be used for hop-analysis in multi-hop ad hoc wireless networks.
