The existing rate adaptive control schemes for ad hoc networks just adapt to the time variation of the fading channels but not to the variation of the network congestion level. In this paper, we propose a user-aware rate adaptive control (UARAC) scheme for IEEE 802.11-based ad hoc networks, which exploits not only time diversity but also multi-user diversity. The UARAC is RTS/CTS based, where a receiver measures the SNR of a RTS frame, and then selectively returns the CTS frame with a piggyback… CONTINUE READING
