We investigate the performance of the IEEE 802.11e while emphasizing on the end-to-end delay performance. In our MAC delay analysis, we are based on elementary conditional probabilities, avoiding the complex Markov Chains method. For a thoroughly study of the MAC delay, we take the Z-transform of the backoff duration in order to provide higher moments of the MAC delay distribution. The first moment corresponds to the mean MAC delay, while the second moment to the Standard Deviation of the MAC… CONTINUE READING
