Unsaturated Throughput Analysis of IEEE 802.11 DCF Under η − μ Fading Channel
This letter investigates the throughput performance of the IEEE 802.11 DCF protocol in unsaturated traffic conditions, taking into account the signal capture with incoherent addition of interfering signals, and channel fading following the η-μ model. A set of numerical results on the performance of the protocol is presented. The results show the adjustment flexibility of the proposed channel model and establishes the parameter μ as the one responsible for the coarse adjustment of the channel, while the parameter η defines the fine adjustment.
