The WiSE Article Series: Interference from Non-WiFi Sources, Part 2

In this second part, we continue the discussion on non-Wi-Fi interference sources. We consider three further types of non-Wi-Fi devices: digital video cameras, ZigBee (IEEE 802.15.4), and jammers. The figure below places these devices on the two-dimensional view introduced in the previous article; the previous three devices are also included for comparison and completeness.

The WiSE Article Series: Wi-Fi Subtleties Explained (Parameters that Matter)

In this second article in the Wi-Fi Subtleties Explained (WiSE) series, Bhaskaran Raman talks about parameters that impact Wi-Fi throughput. You may be surprised to learn that it's not all about the lower layers (Physical and Data Link), but the TCP communications have a significant impact as well.

Dynamic Rate Switching (DRS) and Performance - WLAN Foundations

An intentional part of the 802.11 standard is Dynamic Rate Switching (DRS). DRS adjusts the data rate in order to reduce retransmissions. If the data rate remains at a high rate when the client is farther from the AP, it will result in so many retransmissions that the actual throughput is greatly reduced. Continue reading...

I'm Thankful for the 802.11 Protocol

Today, I was thinking about the 802.11 protocol (no surprise there) and how it relates to Thanksgiving. I realized that Thanksgiving is a time when many of us who celebrate it reflect on the year behind us and appreciate the good things and maybe even some of the bad things that turned out better than we expected. So I began to think about all the good things we have because of the 802.11 protocol. Continue reading...
