Abstract

Problem statement: The IEEE 802.11e EDCA protocol with different access Categories (ACs) supporting for Quality-of-Service (QoS). Due to internal or external packet collision, the Contention Window (CW) of the station increases the channel idle time under high Bit Error Rate (BER). Approach: In this study, we propose an analytical model for performance evaluation of IEEE 802.11e EDCA scheme under non-saturation condition and error prone channel. The new markov chain model have decrease the channel idle time in IEEE 802.11 EDCA and considerably increases the throughput for minimum number of station. Results: We develop an expression for the nonsaturation throughput as a function of the number of stations, packet sizes and BER. Conclusion: We validate the accuracy of our analysis with simulation expression. Using this model, the contention factors can be set appropriately to attain particular Quality-of-Service (QoS) requirements.
