With the increasing development of IEEE 802.11 based wireless local area network (WLAN) devices, large-scale multi-cell WLANs with a high density of users and access points (APs) have emerged widely in various hotspots. Providing resilient data transmission has been a primary challenge for scaling the WLANs because the high density of users and APs results in too many collisions. In this paper, we analyze and point out the defect of the single association mechanism defined in IEEE 802.11 on… CONTINUE READING
