Wireless computer networks are increasingly important as reliable means of communication in medical environments. Evaluation of Quality of Service (QoS) in wireless computer networks deployed in medical environments can improve network performance and enhance utilization of resources. In this study, the QoS offered by IEEE 802.11n and IEEE 802.11ac wireless protocols was evaluated and compared using multiple point-to-point links for Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) traffic. QoS was evaluated based on Predictive Statistical Diagnosis (PSD) and Probabilistic Neural Network (PNN). PSD and PNN based QoS evaluation methods categorized the VoIP packets into low, medium and high QoS types based on the packets' transmission delay, jitter, and percentage packet loss ratio. Both PSD and PNN allowed QoS for VoIP to be quantified accurately. It was shown that 802.11ac provides a higher QoS for VoIP transmission as compared with IEEE 802.11n. The devised methods can be used in medical environments for evaluation of wireless networks' QoS.
