Abstract

Abstract

We have performed some OBSS experiments using our 802.11 simulator. This presentation shows some of our results.

Simulation parameters

Simulation Parameters

  • Home

    • Detached house 8m x 5.5m x 4.8m, 2 floors, 4 rooms per floor

    • Outer walls: 2 layers of Brick, Plaster

    • Inner Walls: 2 sheets drywall*

    • Floors: Wood, Plaster

    • Distance between homes varied from 300m to 1m

  • 802.11 parameters

    • 1 AP and 5 stations per home, randomly placed

    • 11bg mode, European regulatory channel & power rules, no TPC

    • EDCA, no block ACK, no DLS

    • 11n Channel model B + DARPA building material losses

  • Video

    • 2 x 3Mbps video, streamed using unicast UDP

*AKA: gypsum board, wallboard, plasterboard, gib, rock lath, Sheetrock, gyproc

Conclusions

Conclusions

  • If max transmit power is used, signals are above CCA threshold for a long range

    • However, BSS need to be reasonably close before reliable information exchange possible

    • Implies OBSS chains are more complex than “nodes with which communication is possible”

  • Video streams take up a lot of air time

    • However good our OBSS solution is, there is still a finite amount of capacity!

    • Solving the ‘n’ overlap problem is probably only useful in theory, because we run out of capacity after 2 or 3 overlaps!
