In wireless sensor networks, data transmission reliability is a fundamental challenge due to several physical constraints such as interference, power consumption, and environmental effects. In current wireless sensor implementations, a single bit error requires retransmitting the entire frame. This incurs extra processing overhead and power consumption,(More)
In this paper, we analyze the impact of large, persistently-full buffers (`bufferbloat') on various network dynamics in IEEE 802.11n wireless networks. Bufferbloat has mostly been studied in the context of wired networks. We study the impact of bufferbloat on a variety of wireless network topologies, including wireless LAN (WLAN) and multi-hop wireless(More)
Choosing the right buffer size in Wi-Fi networks is challenging due to the dynamic nature of the wireless environment. Over buffering or 'bufferbloat' may produce unacceptable end-to-end delays, while static small buffers may limit the performance gains that can be achieved with various 802.11n enhancements, such as frame aggregation. We propose WQM, a(More)
Wireless full-duplex radios can simultaneously transmit and receive using the same frequency. In theory, this can double the throughput. In fact, there is only little work addressing aspects other than throughput gains in full-duplex systems. Over-buffering in today's networks or the so-called “bufferbloat” phenomenon creates excessive(More)
