The IEEE 802.11 Distributed Coordination Function in Small-Scale Ad-Hoc Wireless LANs

  title={The IEEE 802.11 Distributed Coordination Function in Small-Scale Ad-Hoc Wireless LANs},
  author={Eustathia Ziouva and Theodore Antonakopoulos},
The IEEE 802.11 standards for wireless local area networks define how the stations of an ad-hoc wireless network coordinate in order to share the medium efficiently. This work investigates the performance of such a network by considering the two different access mechanisms proposed in these standards. The IEEE 802.11 access mechanisms are based on the carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA) protocol using a binary slotted exponential backoff mechanism. The basic CSMA/CA… CONTINUE READING
