Average-Value Analysis of 802.11 WLANs With Persistent TCP Flows

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors develop an average-value analysis of the TCP performance in 802.11WLANs. Their model characterizes the equilibrium conditions of the network, and this method yields a simple, yet precise, estimate of the throughput obtained by persistent TCP flows. Via simulations they study the accuracy of the model predictions. DRIVEN by the standardization and rapid deployment of IEEE 802.11 WLANs, the performance analysis of its contention-based MAC protocol has been studied extensively.
