Implementation of IEEE 802.11 MAC Protocol in AD-HOC Network Through Various Parameters

Authors(2) :-Sameeksha Verma, Arpita Singh

IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol is standard for wireless local area networks (LANs), and has also been implemented in many network simulations for wireless multichannel ad hoc networks. However, it is well known that, as the number of active channel increases, the performance of IEEE 802.11 MAC in terms of delay and throughput is decreased especially when each station load approaches its saturation state. Since delay and throughput are important Quality of Service parameters in many wireless applications, we study the performance of different multi-channel Media Access Control (MAC) protocols in ad hoc networks by considering various parameters. This paper presents a new approach for performance evaluation of IEEE 802.11 medium access control MAC protocol for ad-hoc wireless network. The approach based on implementation of IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol in various parameters are calculated such as throughput and minimum access delay on varying number of nodes of IEEE 802.11 protocol which is a standard MAC protocol. The accuracy of the analytical result is verified by NS-2 software tool.
