A Measurement Study on Link Capacity of a High Stress IEEE 802.11b/g Network
Source: Clemson University
The paper presents results from a link capacity measurement study conducted over an IEEE 802.11b/g network with highly stressed radio propagation conditions in a football stadium. Existing capacity studies for IEEE 802.11 networks have considered either stationary or statistical multipath fading channel conditions. In an environment with a high density of people and movement such as in a football stadium or a subway station, the radio characteristics vary much more vibrantly, and their impact on network capacity is not well understood.
