Abstract : The performances of multimedia applications built on wireless systems depend on bandwidth availability that might heavily affect the quality of service. The IEEE 802.11 standards do not provide performed mechanism for bandwidth management through data load distribution among different APs of the network. Then, an AP can be heavily overloaded causing throughput degradation. Load Balancing Algorithms LBAs was been considered as one of the attractive solution to share the traffic through the available access points bandwidths. However, applying the load balancing algorithm and shifting a mobile connection from an access point to another without considering the received signal strength indicator of the concerned APs might causes worst communication performances. This paper is a contribution to check the performance-s limits of the LBA algorithm through experimental evaluation of communication metrics for MPEG-4 video transmission over IEEE 802.11 network. Then, the paper focuses on the proposition of a new LBA algorithm structure with the consideration of the RSS level.
