Analysis of Distributed Reservation Protocol for UWB-Based WPANs with ECMA-368 MAC
— The recent ECMA-368 standard specifies the use of ultra wideband (UWB) technology for high rate communications in wireless personal area networks (WPANs). This paper proposes an analytical model for the performance analysis of the medium access control (MAC) protocol standardized in ECMA-368. The MAC protocol uses a superframe structure. Each superframe has a beacon period, a distributed reservation protocol (DRP) period, and a prioritized contention access (PCA) period. By using the Markovian arrival process (MAP) and phase type distribution (PH), we model this MAC layer as a MAP/PH/1 queueing system, and focus our study on the performance of the DRP period in this paper. The probability mass function of the number of DRP packets in the system, as well the cumulative distribution of the DRP packet’s waiting time are derived and compared with the simulation results in OPNET.
