With the popularity of distributed applications such as BitTorrent and Peer 2 Peer (P2P) networks, coupled with the increase in mobility of end user devices, there is a requirement for dynamic bandwidth management. Mobile users require access to the internet at varying times and for various reasons. Generally this access is via public hotspots in places such as airports, hotels and coffee shops. Therefore it is paramount that user access is managed as some users will utilize an unfair amount of the bandwidth denying access to others. This paper proposes a dynamic wireless bandwidth management system that allocates bandwidth dynamically to users as they authenticate with a wireless access point (AP). In addition, the implementation test results illustrate how the bandwidth dynamically changes when new users are accepted and authenticated to access the bandwidth.
