We develop a service that allows the current IEEE 802.11b MAC protocol to perform dynamic packet sizing and forward error correction. Our service, called ERSMAC, is designed to allow the deployment of the IEEE 802.11b protocol in industrial environments characterized by high BER and fast time variation. ERSMAC uses a maximum likelihood estimate of the BER(More)
This thesis studies throughput improvement for TCP traffic in IEEE 802.11-based multihop ad hoc wireless networks. Due to the Incompatibility between TCP and the IEEE 802.11 distributed coordination function (DCF) protocols, the reaction of TCP in case of packet losses can significantly reduce TCP end-to-end throughput. In this thesis, we propose an(More)
