In thispaperwestudytheimpactof themediumaccesscontrol(MAC) layerandtherouting layeron theperformanceof a multi-hopwirelessnetwork. At the mediumaccesscontrol layer, we argue that the notion of per-nodefairnessemployedby theIEEE802.11standardis not suitablefor a multi-hopwirelessnetwork whereflows traversemultiple hops.We proposea new MAC protocol thatsupports prioritizedper-nodefairnessandsignificantlyimprovesperformancein termsof boththroughputandfairness.At theroutinglayer, weshow that load… CONTINUE READING
