Improving Fairness in Multi-Hop Mesh Networks Using 802.11e
Duffy, K. and Leith, D. J. and Li, T. and Malone, D. (2006) Improving Fairness in Multi-Hop Mesh Networks Using 802.11e. In: 4th International Symposium on Modeling and Optimization in Mobile, Ad Hoc and Wireless Networks, 2006, April 3-7, 2006, Boston, Massachusetts , USA.
In this paper we introduce a tractable analytic model of throughput performance for general 802.11 multi-hop networks. We use this model to explore a number of fairness issues in 802.11 multi-hop networks that have a significant impact on performance and capacity for realistic traffic. Schemes using the functionality provided by 802.11e are proposed to mitigate this unfairness and their efficacy demonstrated.
