Modeling Throughput Performance in 802.11 WLAN

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper presents a mathematical framework for maximizing throughput in Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) channels using key system design parameters such as packet length and transmission rate. The authors study the tradeoff between the throughput and choice of some design variables through extensive computer simulation. They observe from the simulation results that the design parameters are highly signal dependent and can dynamically be adapted to improve the overall system performance, principally in the area of data transmission and reception in WLAN channels.
