This paper proposes a novel Cross-Layer optimization
mechanism for WLAN systems and analyses its performance in
terms of throughput and mean packet delay. The proposed
scheme makes use of a MAC-PHY interaction and a nearoptimum
distributed MAC to improve radio channel utilisation.
The proposed technique allows the MAC layer to improve the
system efficiency by means of certain PHY information
knowledge. Simulation results show that the obtained benefits are
quite remarkable so the proposed scheme is feasible to be
introduced in future wireless communication systems.
