This paper discusses the design requirements for enabling multiple simultaneous peer-to-peer communications in IEEE 802.11 asynchronous networks in the presence of adaptive antenna arrays, and proposes two novel access schemes to realize multipacket communication (MPC). Both presented solutions, which rely on the information acquired by each node during the monitoring of the network activity, are suitable for distributed and heterogeneous scenarios, where nodes equipped with different antenna systems can coexist. The first designed scheme, called threshold access MPC (TAMPC), is based on a threshold on the load sustainable by the single-node, while the second protocol, called signal-to-interference ratio (SIR) access MPC (SAMPC), is based on an accurate estimation of the SIR and on the adoption of low density parity check codes. Both protocols, which are designed to be backward compatible with the 802.11 standard, are numerically tested in realistic scenarios. Furthermore, the performance of the two schemes is compared to the theoretical one and to that of the 802.11n extension in a mobile environment.

Abstract

This paper discusses the design requirements for enabling multiple simultaneous peer-to-peer communications in IEEE 802.11 asynchronous networks in the presence of adaptive antenna arrays, and proposes two novel access schemes to realize multipacket communication (MPC). Both presented solutions, which rely on the information acquired by each node during the monitoring of the network activity, are suitable for distributed and heterogeneous scenarios, where nodes equipped with different antenna systems can coexist. The first designed scheme, called threshold access MPC (TAMPC), is based on a threshold on the load sustainable by the single-node, while the second protocol, called signal-to-interference ratio (SIR) access MPC (SAMPC), is based on an accurate estimation of the SIR and on the adoption of low density parity check codes. Both protocols, which are designed to be backward compatible with the 802.11 standard, are numerically tested in realistic scenarios. Furthermore, the performance of the two schemes is compared to the theoretical one and to that of the 802.11n extension in a mobile environment.
