Random Access Algorithms in Packet Networks- A Review of Three Research Decades

Provided by: Scientific Research
Topic: Software
Format: PDF
In this paper, the authors are focusing on the "Random-access" approach, for the accessing of a single, errorless, slotted channel, by independent, identical, packet transmitting, bursty users. They present a coherent and systematic review of Random Access Algorithms for packet networks, as developed over three and a half decades. They consider the appropriate user models and they classify the algorithms according to the channel sensing constraints imposed. They also present a review of the analytical methodologies required for the performance analysis of these algorithms.
