The Physical Layer of the IEEE 802.11 standard family provides a set of different modulation and coding schemes and, thus, a multitude of data rates. However, the Standard itself does not specify a mechanism to select adaptively among these data rates to improve the network throughput. An efficient rate adaptation scheme should aim to improve channel utilization through selection of optimal data rates that suits current channel conditions. This paper proposes a rate adaptation technique that: 1… CONTINUE READING
