An IEEE 802.11 analytical performance evaluation model for ad-hoc WLAN's comprising terminals with different traffic source characteristics is presented. Although some publications address this issue, most of them propose to modify the original standard by some means that will affect the probability of transmission of a device when the network reaches congestion. The approach of this publication is to be able to establish a set of equations such that an intelligent choice of configuration parameters of standard home devices may improve the performance of the wireless network. Actually, two models are presented and compared, a simple one based on stationary behavior of the network assuming collisions have a negligible effect on network performance, and a second model based on a stationary stochastic model of a network, where devices have a packet ready for transmission at all times.Full Text at Springer, may require registration or fee
