I am developing a specialized screen sharing solution. The requirements call for it to:
- Work over a Wi-Fi LAN network.
- provide minimum latency and jitter.
I did all I know how to do on the programming side of things but I see that there is great variance in both jitter and latency in different wireless networks and setups (different base stations, ad-hoc vs. Managed etc.)
By trial and error I ran across base station settings that affect latency and jitter, such as power saving mode, beacon interval and DTIM values, but I would be very interested if somehow I could lay down optimal base station config options for minimum latency and jitter.
I understand of course that such optimization may very well decrease bandwidth or cause other undesired artifacts, but I would still be interested to know which knobs to try pushing and what they do.
