Introduction

  • Wireless communication link in a WLAN is time varying

  • Rate-adaptive MAC protocols have been proposed in the past for WLANs

    • Channel condition

    • RTS/CTS handshake

Introduction cont2

Introduction (cont.)

  • These proposed protocols only allowed static size of fragments

    • Higher overhead of transmitting each fragment

    • Channel could not be used effectively


Proposed protocol

Proposed protocol

  • A dynamic fragmentation scheme to enhance throughput

    • Durations of all fragments, except the last one, should be set the same in any data rate

    • A Rate-Based fragmentation thresholding scheme is employed

    • A new fragment is generated only when the rate is decided for the next fragment transmission

      • Dynamic Fragmentation


Fragmentation scheme

Fragmentation Scheme

  • In order to generate fragments with the same time duration, the different aFragmentationThresholds should be used in different data rate R

Nav update

NAV update

  • Because the durations of all the fragments are the same, except the last fragment

    • MoreFragments = 1

  • NAV update


Failure policy

Failure policy

  • When the transmission of a fragment fails

    • The size of the retransmitted fragment may not be the same as before

      • Channel condition may have changed

    • Sender only decreases the remaining MSDU size when receives the ACK from the receiver


Performance evaluation

Performance Evaluation

  • Single-hop environment

    • No hidden node

  • Transmission rage : 300 m

  • Rate selection

Conclusion

Conclusion

  • This paper proposes a new rate-adaptive MAC protocol with dynamic fragmentation

  • Nodes with good channels can transmit more data

  • Constant duration in physical layer simplifies the process of NAV update

  • Simulations show the throughput gain from the conventional scheme
