Implementation of the IEEE 802.11a MAC layer in C language
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree)Student thesisAlternative title
Implementering av IEEE 802.11a MAC-lagret i programspråket C (Swedish)
Wireless communication is being developed in the last years day by day, there are several standards that talks about it. We are going to go through the IEEE standard 802.11 which talks about wireless LAN Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) Specifications. Looking this more carefully we will study MAC specifications and its environment.
The work that ISY department at Institute of Technology of Linkoping University has proposed is to design a MAC sublayer implementation for WLANs using C language programming and testing it with the test environment called “test bench”. This test bench will simulate LLC sublayer and PHY layer, in this way, our MAC implementation will has to interact with it. Therefore we will simulate a wireless network where we are going to have a short number of stations and we are going to look at carefully the MAC sublayer response in an ad hoc network.
