WLAN Assignment I Question: Consider a CSMA/CA 802.11 WLAN with three stations A, B and C. The following are values used in the BSS: DIFS = 34µsec SIFS = 16µsec Slot Time = 9µsec ACK = 20µsec The three nodes have following data packets in their output MAC queues waiting to be transmitted: (The numbers indicate the transmission time of a frame in the medium in Slot Times ). The three frames have not experienced any previous collisions. Within brackets we show the type of application data the node is attempting to transmit. Node A: 10 Slot times (ftp) Node B: 5 Slot times (video-conferencing) Node C: 7 Slot times (e-mail) The following table gives the values of back-offs chosen by the nodes incase of collisions. Node First Attempt Collision 1 A 3 3 B 3 4 C 5 4 Assume that some node ‘X’ has finished transmitting an ACK frame at time t = 0. Draw a time chart to show what happens in the medium starting at time t = 0 to the end of transmission of all 3 frames. How do you think the protocol performed in terms of fairness to the application data?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
