Rate adaptation algorithms (RAAs) in 802.11 networks can have a significant impact on network throughput. In order to attempt to maximize throughput, these algorithms dynamically adapt to inferred changes in the channel being used. Evaluating and comparing rate adaptation algorithms is extremely challenging due to the variability of channel conditions. Recent work on developing and evaluating new RAAs has used traces to increase the realism of simulators. We propose a new framework for the… CONTINUE READING
