We propose a closed-loop, dynamic rate adaptation algorithm that can be implemented in all IEEE 802.11 a/b/g compliant wireless local area networks. Our proposed algorithm is a culmination of the best attributes of the transmitter-based auto-rate fall-back (ARF) and the receiver-based auto-rate (RBAR) control mechanisms with additional practical features to facilitate multipath fading channel sensing and feedback control signalling. Unlike ARF, our technique supports real-time feedback… CONTINUE READING
