The inherent channel characteristics of impulse-based UWB networks affect the MAC layer performance significantly. Previous studies on evaluating MAC protocols are based on prolonged simulations, and do not account for the multiple-access interference that arises due to multipath delay spread. In this work, we develop CTU, an analytical framework that captures the performance of MAC protocols, while taking into account the underlying PHY layer effects. The key attributes that make CTU novel are… CONTINUE READING
