Title: Optimization of airtime among Wi-Fi clients connected to an access point

Abstract: An airtime optimization module monitors each client's connection, and continually calculates airtime for each connection. Then, it shapes the Wi-Fi channel's bandwidth to provide equal airtime to each client connection. The process re-activates every N seconds, for example, every 2 seconds. The airtime optimization module with the optimization algorithm component can be incorporated in the AP firmware or it can reside on a command and control server of any WISP or Enterprise Networks. The airtime optimization module can also be embodied in a software application running under any desktop or mobile operating system. Therefore, the airtime optimization module can be installed to operate at the AP level or at the network level or as an application.
