SUMMARY Wireless local area networks (WLANs) based on the IEEE 802.11 standards have been widely implemented mainly because of their easy deployment and low cost. The IEEE 802.11 collision avoidance procedures utilize the binary exponential backoff (BEB) scheme that reduces the collision probability by doubling the contention window after a packet(More)
During the past few years the wireless technology market has experienced a tremendous growth. IEEE and Infrared Data Association (IrDA) have developed 802.11 and Advanced Infrared (AIr) protocols, respectively, in order to cope with modern communication needs. This paper develops a simple and accurate analysis to evaluate saturation performance of the IEEE(More)
