Design, modelling and analysis of cross-layer algorithms

The MAC layer of IEEE 802.11 standard for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) presents two options, namely the Distributed Coordination Function (DCF) and the Point Coordination Function (PCF), where DCF is similar to Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance (CSMA/CA) method and is the main focus of this research activity. In particular, the team has recently obtained both theoretical and practical results in connection with the modelling of the DCF of IEEE 802.11 WLANs.
