Wireless IEEE 802.11 networks in residences, small businesses, and public "hot spots" typically encounter the <i>wireline</i> access link (DSL, cable modem, T1, etc.) as the slowest and most expensive part of the end-to-end path. Consequently, network architectures have been proposed that employ multiple wireless hops in route to and from the wired(More)
The Resilient Packet Ring (RPR) IEEE 802.17 standard is a new technology for high-speed backbone metropolitan area networks. A key performance objective of RPR is to simultaneously achieve high utilization, spatial reuse, and fairness, an objective not achieved by current technologies such as SONET and Gigabit Ethernet nor by legacy ring technologies such(More)

In this paper, we study the performance of utility maximization congestion control over multihop CSMA-based networks. We consider decoupled vs. joint design of congestion control and medium access and consider unmodified MAC protocols such as IEEE 802.11. Networks employing such MAC protocols incur flow <i>starvation</i> both without congestion control and(More)
