The performance of the IEEE 802.11 WLAN are influenced by the wireless channel characteristics that reflect on the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), particularly in industrial communication systems, that often operate in harsh environments. In order to cope with SNR reductions, the IEEE 802.11 WLAN specification suggests to adapt (reduce) the transmission rate, since the modulation techniques employed at the lower rates are more robust. However, the standard does not define any rate adaptation (RA… CONTINUE READING
