 Abstract
Recently, smartphone, notebook, PC and other supporting wireless LAN device have come into wide use. By increasing user that use wireless LAN device, wireless traffic also increased. If wireless traffic through one AP is increase, it causes throughput decrease. To solve this problem, wireless LAN service provider install more AP where overload occurred. But this is not enough. Because stations can't know AP's load factor, and APs do nothing for load balancing. In this paper, we propose Multi-Interface Access Point(MIAP) to solve this problem. MIAP operate same as multiple APs with multi-interface, and MIAP measure each interface's load periodically. If MIAP detect overloaded interface, MIAP transfer station from overloaded interface to under-loaded interface. We conducted an experiment for verifying existing problem, and we found this problem occurred. We plan an experiment scenario for a comparison between existing AP and MIAP, and excute these experiment. In the result, we show MIAP with load balancing can improve total throughput about 72% and stabilize delay jitter than existing AP.
