Effects of Adjusting Data-Rate and Physical Characteristics on the Delay Metric in Ieee802.11b Wireless Local Area Network
The IEEE802.11b is one of the protocol standards used in Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN). There are several parameters which must be considered when handling IEEE802.11b. These parameters are tuned or adjusted to a certain level for proper enhancement of qualities of service or metrics. Some of these parameters are the data rate; buffer size, Fragmentation ThreShold (FTS), Receive To Send/Clear To Send (RTS/CTS) threshold, physical characteristics, etc. Those qualities of service or metrics are the throughput, data dropped, delay, load; media access delay, retransmission attempts, etc. However, this paper analyzes the effects of adjusting the data-rate and physical characteristics parameters on the delay metric in IEEE802.11b WLAN network.
