The performance of the IEEE 802.11 protocol based on the distributed coordination function (DCF) has been shown to be dependent on the number of competing terminals and the backoff parameters. Better performance can be expected if the parameters are adapted to the number of active users. In this paper we develop both off-line and online Bayesian signal processing algorithms to estimate the number of competing terminals. The estimation is based on the observed use of the channel and the number… CONTINUE READING
