Optimizing Aggregate Throughput in 802.11 Networks through Balancing Spatial Reuse and Transmission Rate


Traditional medium access control (MAC) protocols utilize temporal mechanism to do contention resolution. This paper explores an alternative approach by adapting the space occupied by a transmission to resolve contention. Each successful transmission in a wireless network needs to occupy a certain part of space in which there are no other simultaneous… (More)
