Analysis and the Performance Effectiveness of RTS /CTS mechanism in IEEE 802.11
Wireless communication is one of the fastest-growing technologies. IEEE 802.11 is one of the most organized technologies in wireless LANs. There are two access mechanism of IEEE 802.11 DCF; Basic access mechanism and RTS/CTS mechanism. There are several parameters that have significant impact on network performance when RTS/CTS mechanism is taken into account. The parameters include packet payload, network traffic, and interference range, mobility of node and fairness issue. In this paper, the authors find the performance efficiency on several parameters.
