On passive characterization of aggregated traffic in wireless networks
2011 (English)Report (Other academic)
We present a practical measurement-based model of aggregated traffic intensity on microseconds time scale for wireless networks. The model allows estimating the traffic intensity for the period of time required to transmit data structures of different size (short control frames and a data packet of the maximum size). The presented model opens a possibility to mitigate the effect of interferences in the network by optimizing the communication parameters of the MAC layer (e.g. size of contention window, retransmission strategy, etc.) for the forthcoming transmission to minimize the packet collision probability and further increase network's capacity. We also discuss issues and challenges associated with PHY-layer characterization of the network state.
