Improvement of WLAN Contention Resolution by Loss Differentiation

Abstract

In a realistic WLAN environment, frame losses may be caused by collisions or channel noise. The existence of noise-induced losses reduces the effectiveness of the standard WLAN backoff algorithm for contention resolution, which assumes that all losses are caused by collisions and always doubles the contention window to reduce contention upon a frame loss… (More)
