Paper Abstract

We propose and analyze a MAC protocol aptly designed for WLAN, based on OFDM modulation. The goal of the analysis is to provide an efficient tool to deliver to voice and data terminals acceptable QoS connections, overcoming the problem of large number of retransmissions, high delays and low reliability. Simulation results show that, in a real environment, the proposed algorithm is able to achieve good performance in terms of throughput and message delivery delay.
