dc.description.abstractMost studies of the performance of IEEE 802.11 consider scenarios of ad-hoc topology networks and do not contemplate the network broadcast information contained in beacon frames. The paper presents a study of the performance of a WLAN whose infrastructure's topology is such that the access point is in charge of broadcasting the beacon frames. Thus, it is more realistic than previous studies, because beacon frames are usually transmitted in order to announce control information and network identity. Furthermore, in the coverage area, user stations are likely to be working at different data rates, depending on their signal quality. Because beacon frames must be received by all stations, they are transmitted at the lowest data rate operating in the coverage area. The article introduces a mathematical method to calculate the influence of beacon frames on the total throughput, collision probability and delays of the IEEE 802.11g protocol. The model is validated by simulation analysis.
