Abstract

Fairness of wireless channel access in terms of utilisation and throughput is studied for IEEE 802.11g by using the process algebra PEPA. Three models are presented to describe dif-ferent operating scenarios. Results are derived which demon-strate when and how unfairness might occur, leading to the penalisation of some nodes in a network.
