Understanding the performances of backoff algorithms in multi-hop ad hoc networks is a key feature to design efficient medium access protocols. The 802.11 binary exponential backoff algorithm and all the enhancements done to this algorithm have been studied in depth in a single hop context. Very few analytical studies are carried out on 802.11 backoff algorithms in a multi-hop context due to the difficulty of modeling. In this paper we propose an analytical study, based on a stochastic process… CONTINUE READING
