Summary Assuring the required quality of service, despite the growing volume and variety of Internet of Things (IoT) traffic, has remained an immense challenge in the popular WiFi networks. The IoT devices using short TCP flows often attain very different levels of service due to the complicated interactions between the transport layer protocol and the shared dynamic wireless medium. We develop in this paper a novel queue management policy by using a transient model to capture the interactions of IoT (short TCP) flows over traditional traffic in WiFi networks. Based on the Markov regenerative processes coupled with fluid model, we discover that the adaptive admission control (AAC) mechanism at the WiFi access point (AP) improves the response time and fairness of IoT traffic over the lossy WiFi links. To this end, under the proposed AAC, packets are admitted into the AP in such a way that the fractions of packets in the AP buffer belonging to the different IoT devices are balanced resulting in a comparable level of service. We furthermore prove the stability of the system dynamics under AAC which provides important practical insights in designing Home WiFi IoT system.
