How Penalty Leads to Improvement: a Measurement Study of Wireless Backoff

Abstract

Despite much theoretical work, different modifications of backoff protocols in 802.11 networks lack empirical evidence demonstrating their real-life performance. To fill the gap we have set out to experiment with performance of exponential backoff by varying its backoff factor. Despite the satisfactory results for throughput, we have witnessed poor fairness… (More)
