Abstract

This paper presents a new bidirectional transmission protocol with single data frame to computing the performance of MAC layer based on IEEE 802.11n. As high as 600 Mbps of physical data rate is achieved in IEEE 802.11n where high data rate the current MAC layer leads to high performance overhead and low performance of throughput and designing the MAC layer still ongoing to achieve high performance throughput. In this study, a new bidirectional transmission protocol with single data frame has been proposed called BTDF bidirectional transmission data fragmentation, which is divided each data frame from sender to receiver and reverse into subframes and send each subframe, Packets those exceed the size threshold are divided into fragments also where the corrupted subframe will be retransmitted during the disruption of transmission. We have implemented this scheme in NS2 simulator to show the results for TCP and HDTV traffics and compared with literature.
