WMM stands for W
edia. It is a standard created to define quality of service (QoS
) in Wi-Fi networks. It is a precursor to the upcoming IEEE 802.11
e WLAN QoS draft standard, which is meant to improve audio, video and voice applications transmitted over Wi-Fi
. WMM adds prioritized capabilities to Wi-Fi networks and optimizes their performance when multiple concurring applications
, each with different latency and throughput requirements, compete for network resources.
