— This letter presents an accurate model for the performance analysis of the IEEE 802.11 saturation throughput with freezing of the backoff counter. The model corrects the existing model presented by Ziouva and Antonakopoulos which assumes that the channel access probability and station collision probability are independent of channel status. Simulation(More)
— A new approach for modeling and performance analysis of the IEEE 802.11 medium access control (MAC) protocol is presented. The approach is based on the so-called system approximation technique, where the protocol service time distribution of the IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol is studied and approximated by an appropriate phase-type distribution, leading to the(More)
— In this paper, we introduce a simple model for the enhanced distributed channel access (EDCA) mechanism under saturation condition. This model captures the operation of the AIFS and contention window differentiation of the EDCA mechanism. Using this model, we analyze the throughput and delay performance of EDCA. The results of our analytical model are(More)
We propose in this paper an optimized, polymorphic, hybrid multicast routing protocol for MANET. This new polymorphic protocol attempts to benefit from the high efficiency of proactive behavior (in terms of quicker response to transmission requests) and the limited network traffic overhead of the reactive behavior, while being power, mobility, and(More)
— Quality of service support in wireless LAN is a theme of current interest. Several solutions have been proposed in literature in order to protect time-sensitive traffic from best-effort traffic. According to the EDCA proposal, which is a completely distributed solution, the service differentiation is provided by giving probabilistically higher number of(More)
— In mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), packets hop from a source to a series of forwarding nodes until they reach the desired destination. Defining the hop length to be the distance between two adjacent forwarding nodes, we observe that the two adjacent forwarding nodes tend to be farther away from each other with a higher probability in a one-dimensional(More)
— Many models have been proposed to analyze the performance of the IEEE 802.11 distributed coordination function (DCF) and the IEEE 802.11e enhanced distributed coordination function (EDCA) under saturation condition. To analyze DCF under statistical traffic, Foh and Zukerman introduce a model that uses Markovian Framework to compute the throughput and(More)
— The emergence of high speed WLANs, such as the IEEE 802.11a and IEEE 802.11g, has provided an alternative solution for mobile users to access a network in addition to the popular IEEE 802.11b solution. Although the channel data rate of those emerging high speed WLANs is five times higher than that of 802.11b, some recent studies have shown that the(More)
— In mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), packets are forwarded by a series of nodes to the desired destination. Previously, we have studied the network connectivity of MANETs. In this paper, we study the reliability of an established route between a source to a destination. The route is considered reliable only when all links in the route remain connected for(More)
— We propose in this paper, a polymorphic, hybrid multicast routing protocol for MANET. This new polymorphic protocol attempts to take benefit of the high efficiency of proactive behavior and the low cost of network traffic of the reactive behavior. The protocol is based on the principle of adaptability and multi-behavioral modes of operations. The proposed(More)
