A New Backoff Algorithm for the IEEE 802 . 11 Distributed Coordination Function

  title={A New Backoff Algorithm for the IEEE 802 . 11 Distributed Coordination Function},
  author={Jing Deng and Pramod K. Varshney},
In the IEEE 802.11 Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs), network nodes experiencing collisions on the shared channel need to backoff for a random period of time, which is uniformly selected from the Contention Window (CW ). This contention window is dynamically controlled by the Binary Exponential Backoff (BEB) algorithm. The BEB scheme, as shown in some studies in the literature, suffers from a fairness problem and low throughput under high traffic load. In this paper, we propose a new backoff… CONTINUE READING
