This paper proposes a novel analytical model to evaluate the system performance of the IEEE 802.11 MAC sublayer under both light and heavy traffic loads. This approach, based on a three-dimensional Markov chain, generalizes the bi-dimensional Markov chain models introduced in the literature. Traditional bi-dimensional Markov chain models, while suitable for throughput analysis, are unable to capture QoS performance metrics such as the average packet delay, the average queue length and the… CONTINUE READING
