We consider the vector fixed point equations arising out of the analysis of the saturation throughput of a single cell IEEE 802.11e (EDCA) wireless local area network with nodes that have different backoff parameters, including different Arbitration InterFrame Space (AIFS) values. We consider balanced and unbalanced solutions of the fixed point equations arising in homogeneous (i.e., one with the same backoff parameters) and nonhomogeneous networks. By a balanced fixed point, we mean one where… CONTINUE READING
