The impact of IEEE 802.11 MAC strategies on multi-hop wireless mesh networks


This paper analyzes the impact of different MAC (medium access control) and transmission rate adaptation schemes on wireless mesh networks. The considered protocols include three different MAC protocols specified in IEEE 802.11 standards, i.e., 802.11, 802.11e, and 802.11n, and three rate adaptation schemes, i.e., ARF (automatic rate fallback), RBAR… (More)
