Improving MAC Layer Performance in WLAN

Panigrahy, Nitish Kumar and Kanher, Manat (2012) Improving MAC Layer Performance in WLAN. BTech thesis.



WLAN stands for Wireless Local Area Network. Now a days wireless technology have been widely implemented starting from home to educational institutes. So improving its performance is highly required. To increase the performance of the network some modifications can be made in MAC layer. So MAC layer has been studied thoroughly and some modification was done on back off algorithm.
Some of the key concepts of our project are:
Distance and performance: If distance between station and the AP varies then also performance varies.
Scalability & Collision: If number of nodes increases in a network then its performance decreases due to heavy traffic.
WLAN mechanisms: It may be Basic Access or RTS-CTS i.e. either directly sending the data or after RTS-CTS handshake.
Back-off algorithms: There are mainly three back-off algorithms. EIED, MILD & BEB.

EIED was compared with BEB wrt various packet arrival rates (eight) for RTS-CTS mechanism. Previous work has been done on Basic access mechanism. Some results were proposed by taking various combinations of values of EIED algorithm.
