A Novel Approach to Contention Control in IEEE 802.11e-Operated WLANs

  author={Chunyu Hu and Jennifer C. Hou},
  journal={IEEE INFOCOM 2007 - 26th IEEE International Conference on Computer Communications},
In this paper, we devise, in compliance with the IEEE 802.11e protocol, a novel MAC-centric approach, called MAC contention control (MCC), to maximizing the bandwidth utilization and achieving proportional bandwidth allocation. We first show that approaches based on estimating the number of competing nodes and then setting the contention window size may not converge (and in some cases diverge) because of network dynamics. Then, by studying the optimality condition derived in our prior work, we… CONTINUE READING
