It is well known that the medium access control (MAC) layer is the main bottleneck for the IEEE 802.11 wireless LANs. Much work has been done on performance analysis of the 802.11 MAC. However, most of them assume that the wireless channel is error free. In this paper, we investigate the saturation throughput performance achieved at the MAC layer, in both congested and error-prone channels. We provide a simple and accurate analytical model to calculate the MAC throughput. The model is validated through extensive simulation results. Our results show that channel errors have a significant impact on the system performance. Copyright (c) 2005 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
