Two simple modifications for improving IEEE802.11 DCF throughput performance

Abstract

IEEE802.11 employs distributed coordination function (DCF) as a media access control method. In order to address the hidden terminal problem, the DCF equips the virtual carrier sensing function in addition to the traditional carrier sensing function, CSMA. The virtual carrier sensing is realized by the RTS/CTS short packets exchange and the NAV. The RTS/CTS… (More)
