Abstract

The IEEE 802.11e Medium Access Control (MAC) for Quality-of-Service (QoS) support in 802.11 networks defines burst transmission and new acknowledgment (ACK) operations as optional mechanisms for increasing channel utilization. In this paper, we investigate how the performance of these new features is affected by the presence of fiber delay in high speed Wireless LAN (WLAN) over fiber networks. It is shown that the negative effect of the fiber delay on the throughput performance of the 802.11 MAC protocol can be significantly reduced when burst transmission is used with the Block or the No ACK policies.
