IEEE 802.11ac: Enhancing Throughput and MAC Layer Performance With Rate Adaptation Algorithm

The IEEE 802.11ac is an emerging Very High Throughput (VHT) WLAN standard, targeted to achieve data rates close to 6.9 Gbps for 5GHz spectrum band. The paper presents the throughput analysis of 802.11ac MAC layer with help of rate adaptation algorithm to show efficacy of 802.11ac over 802.11n WLAN standard since MAC layer performance is important for higher download speeds. The paper aims to bring out the high throughput of IEEE 802.11ac and adoptability in enterprise and corporate environments.
