A Performance Analysis of IEEE 802.11 Networks in the Presence of Hidden Stations
: IEEE 802.11 is a wireless network standard that was completed in 1997. Unfortunately, the medium access protocol described in the standard meets some problems that arise from the presence of so-called hidden stations. This situation can cause degradation of the network performance. The paper describes a simulation analysis of influence of hidden stations on the IEEE 802.11 network efficiency in four different hidden terminals scenarios. The throughput and the mean packet delay as a function of the offered load has been studied. The presented results allow us to determine the usefulness of RTS/CTS mechanism usage in the presence of hidden stations.
