The collision probability in the MAC layer could become very high when a poor backoff algorithm is used, especially in dense networks. The Binary Exponential Backoff (BEB) used in the IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol uses a uniform random distribution to choose the backoff value. This often leads to reducing the effect of window size increment. This paper proposes(More)
AbstRAct In wireless communication environments, backoff is traditionally based on the IEEE binary exponential backoff (BEB). Using BEB results in a high delay in message transmission, collisions and ultimately wasting the limited available bandwidth. As each node has to obtain medium access before transmitting a message, in dense networks, the collision(More)

— The standard IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol uses the Binary Exponential Backoff algorithm. The Binary Exponential Backoff makes exponential increments to contention window sizes. This work has studied the effect of choosing a combination between linear, exponential and logarithmic increments to contention windows. Results have shown that choosing the right(More)
