Frame Aggregation Mechanism for Highthroughput 802.11n WLANs
IEEE 802.11n Draft is next-generation wireless LAN standard. This paper gives detailed description and comparative study of A-MPDU and Two level frame aggregation mechanisms proposed in the latest 802.11n draft standard, which improve extensively the channel efficiency and data throughput. Ns 2 simulator is used for simulation of 802.11n WLAN frame aggregation. Simulation results confirm that AMPDU, and Two level frame aggregation methods improve extensively data throughput. It analyze the performance of each frame aggregation scheme in distinct scenarios, and it conclude that overall, the two-level aggregation can improve throughput performance of 802.11n.
