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 transmitted bit rates. Furthermore, if there is even a single bit error in the packet, the entire packet is discarded and the packet is retransmitted. This causes the effective throughput to be a function of the… CONTINUE READING
