Fast proliferation of 802.11 devices has led to the emergence of High-Density WLAN where 100s-1000s clients being serviced by 10s-100s of APs in a multi-cell environment. Scalable network capacity becomes a primary design challenge. In this paper, we investigate the impact of hidden/exposed terminal and the lack of capture effect on today’s 802.11 devices on network throughput. We argue that the CSMA/CA parameters in 802.11 MAC protocol need to be adaptive to the changing network topology… CONTINUE READING
