Saturation throughput analysis of IEEE 802.11g (ERP-OFDM) networks

Article

Abstract

This paper presents the saturation throughput analysis of IEEE 802.11g (ERP-OFDM) networks. The presented work is based on the Markov model previously introduced and validated by the authors in Szczypiorski and Lubacz (Lecture Notes in Computer Science, vol. 4516, pp. 1082–1093, Springer, [2007]). In the present paper the saturation throughput is evaluated in different channel conditions as a function of frame length.
