This paper explores the throughput performance of CSMA/CA (carrier sense multiple access/collision avoidance)-based DCF (distributed coordination function) protocol over frequency-selective, slow Ricean fading channels at the MAC layer in the 802.11a wireless LAN. By analyzing the DCF throughput with the mandatory data rate of 6 Mbps, 12 Mbps, 24 Mbps and… (More)
