A New Approach for the Throughput Analysis of IEEE 802.11 in Networks with Hidden Terminals

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The dominance of IEEE 802.11 in the area of single-hop wireless networks is self-evident and has been supported by both simulation results and analytical modeling. On the contrary, the question as to whether the Distributed Coordination Function (DCF) performs satisfactorily enough in multi-hop networks still remains open. In this paper, we aim to give an initial view of this by introducing an analytical framework for the evaluation of DCF in networks exhibiting hidden terminals. The accuracy of our model is determined by comparison with simulations.
