37 Wireless Link Power Budget Analysis When operating at 3 Mbps, a WLAN system has transmission power of 15 dBm, and the receiver power must be at least –72 dBm. The communication power budget is therefore: ( 29 dB 87 dBm 72 dBm 15 (dBm) P (dBm) P (dB) budget Power receiver trans = - - = - = To find how transmission distance and frequency affect the power budget, we can calculate the free space isotropic loss. This is the path loss incurred by an electromagnetic wave as it propagates in a straight line through a vacuum from one isotropic antenna to another. At any point around the antenna, the power density is: ( 29 2 4 r P r total ISO π ρ =

41 CSMA (Carrier Sense Multiple Access) CSMA : listen before transmit. If channel is sensed busy , listens again. ( Kleinrock, 1975 ) Persistent CSMA : retry immediately when collide (this may cause instability) Non persistent CSMA : retry after random interval Note: collisions may still exist, since two stations may sense the channel idle at the same time In case of collision, transmission time is wasted CSMA with Collision Avoidance (CA) access schemes used in wireless LANs. Here sensing the carrier combined with a back-off scheme. (MACA)

### What students are saying

• 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.
