On optimizing backoff counter reservation and classifying stations for the IEEE 802.11 distributed wireless LANs

Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel contention-based protocol called backoff counter reservation and classifying stations for the IEEE 802.11 distributed coordination function (DCF). In the proposed scheme, each station has three states: idle, reserved, and contentious. A station is in the idle state if it has no frame ready to transmit. A station is in the… (More)
