An analytical formulation of the saturated throughput of prioritized contention access (PCA) in the presence of hard distributed reservation protocols (DRPs) and beacon period (BP) in WiMedia MAC (formerly multi-band OFDM alliance (MBOA) MAC) is presented. The analytical framework is formulated for one hard DRP class and N PCA classes. The state transition diagram for the ith priority PCA class is modeled by a tri-dimensional discrete-time Markov chain. One dimension of the Markov chain is for… CONTINUE READING
