Wireless local area networks offer a range of transmitted data rates that are to be selected according to estimated channel conditions. However, due to packet overheads and contention times introduced by the CSMA/CA multiple access protocol, effective throughput is much less than the nominal data rates. Most multimedia applications use small payload sizes in order to ensure reliable, low latency transmission. This results in a further loss in effective throughput thereby reducing network… CONTINUE READING
