Synchronized CSMA Contention: Model, Implementation and Evaluation
— A class of CSMA protocols used in a broad range of wireless applications uses synchronized contention where nodes periodically contend at intervals of fixed duration. While several models exist for asynchronous CSMA contention used in protocols like IEEE 802.11 MAC, no model exists for synchronized CSMA contention that also incorporates realistic factors like clock drifts. In this paper, we introduce a model that quantifies the interplay of clock drifts with contention window size, control packet size, and carrier sense regulated by usage of guard time. Using an FPGA-based MAC protocol implementation and controlled experiments on a wireless testbed we evaluate the model predictions on the isolated and combined impact of these key performance factors to per-flow throughput and fairness properties in both single-hop and multi-hop networks. Our model and experimental evaluation reveal conditions on protocol parameters under which the throughput of certain flows can exponentially d...
