The IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol for medium access control in wireless Local Area Networks (LANs) is the de facto standard for wireless ad hoc networks, however, it does not perform well in terms of delay, throughput, and specially, fairness in multihop wireless ad hoc networks. Many researches have been published in this area. Among them, a modification of the(More)
SUMMARY IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol for medium access control in wireless Local Area Networks (LANs) is the de facto standard for wireless ad hoc networks. However, it does not perform well in terms of fairness, delay and throughput specially, in multihop networks. The problem is due to both the MAC and link layer contentions. Many research papers have been(More)
SUMMARY In this paper, we propose a new cross-layer scheme Cooperation between channel Access control and TCP Rate Adaptation (CATRA) aiming to manage TCP flow contention in multi-hop ad hoc networks. CATRA scheme collects useful information from MAC and physical layers to estimate channel utilization of the station. Based on this information , we adjust(More)
IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol for medium access control in wireless Local Area Networks (LANs) is the de facto standard for wireless ad hoc networks, but it does not necessarily satisfy QoS requirement by users such as fairness among flows or throughput of flows. In this paper, we propose a new scheme aiming to solve per-flow fairness problem and achieves good(More)
BACKGROUND Over the last 15 years, hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) has emerged as a major public health burden across the Asia-Pacific region. A small proportion of HFMD patients, typically those infected with enterovirus 71 (EV71), develop brainstem encephalitis with autonomic nervous system (ANS) dysregulation and may progress rapidly to(More)
SUMMARY The IEEE 802.11 MAC standard for wireless ad hoc networks adopts Binary Exponential Back-off (BEB) mechanism to resolve bandwidth contention between stations. BEB mechanism controls the bandwidth allocation for each station by choosing a back-off value from one to CW according to the uniform random distribution, where CW is the contention window(More)
