Title: An Integrated PHY and MAC Layer Model for Half-Duplex IEEE 802.11 Networks
Published: November 02, 2010
Abstract: This paper introduces an IEEE 802.11 analytical model that examines uplink and downlink communications between non-saturated stations and a non-saturated access point. The model integrates channel effects and collisions into a single expression for the probability of frame loss, and does not treat PHY and MAC layer events as independent. In addition, the model considers the half-duplex nature of the IEEE 802.11 channel in determining when transmission attempts succeed.
