Carrier sense multiple access with enhanced collision avoidance: a performance analysis
Abstract—Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Enhanced Collision Avoidance (CSMA/ECA) is a recently proposed modification to the well-known CSMA/CA protocol. By using a deterministic backoff after successful transmissions, the number of collisions decreases. This article presents a model that captures the behaviour of CSMA/ECA in both saturated and non-saturated scenarios. The results, which are validated by simulations, show that CSMA/ECA effectively prevents collisions and, therefore, it can deliver a higher throughput than CSMA/CA.
