Improving the Bandwidth Sharing in IEEE 802.11

Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new solution to cope with the unfairness limitations of the distributed coordination function (DCF) algorithm. Our solution is based on multiple backoff windows principle. We demonstrate through simulations the efficiency of our proposal that enables fair bandwidth sharing and increase total network throughput.
