Probabilistic-Based Rate Adaptation for IEEE 802.11 WLANs
— Collision awareness has been recognized as a critical component for effective rate adaptation schemes. Recently, several collision-aware rate adaptation schemes have been proposed for IEEE 802.11 Wireless LANs (WLANs), such as CARA (Collision Aware Rate Adaptation) and RRAA (Robust Rate Adaptation Algorithm). These schemes are able to distinguish between channelerror-induced and collision-induced frame losses via adaptive and appropriate usage of RTS/CTS; hence the multiple transmission rates provided by 802.11 physical layers (PHYs) may be fully exploited. In this paper, we propose a unique collision-aware rate adaptation scheme, called PBRA (Probabilistic-Based Rate Adaptation). The key ideas of PBRA include (i) probabilistic-based adaptive usage of RTS/CTS, which is in direct contrast to trialbased RTS Probing in CARA and window-based adaptive usage of RTS/CTS in RRAA; and (ii) threshold-based rate adjustment, which allows a station to make more appropriate rate adjustment decis...
