Cross-layer goodput analysis for rate adaptive IEEE 802.11a WLAN in the generalized Nakagami fading channel


This paper aims to evaluate the goodput performance of the IEEE 802.11 a wireless local area network (WLAN) from both the media access control (MAC) layer and physical (PHY) layer perspectives. From the physical layer perspective, we analyze the packet error rate performance of the orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) based WLANs under the… (More)
