Based on the analysis of TCP performance of over the two ways of IEEE 802.11 DCF (RTS/CTS and CSMA/CA), TCP flows becomes unstable when WLAN is in high load. In this paper, we propose a novel backoff algorithm for IEEE 802.11 DCF named as ACWB (adaptive contention window backoff) with cross-layer optimization. Its basic idea is to dynamically adjust the… CONTINUE READING
