Implementering av IEEE 802.11a MAC lagret i programspråket C (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

There are several standards for wireless communication. People that are involved in computers and networking recognize names like Bluetooth, HiperLAN and IEEE 802.11. The last one was standardized in 1997 [2,6]and has begun to reach acceptance as a solid ground for wireless networking. A fundamental part of an IEEE 802.11 node is the Medium Access Controller, or MAC. It establishes and controls communication with other nodes, using a physical layer unit.

The work has been carried out as final project at Linkopings Universitet, it has been about the improvement of the functions of MAC layer. I have developed some of the required functions that PUM uses to interact with the MAC layer. Because of that, I have implemented the Reception functions of MAC layer, having the possibility of using short control frames RTS/CTS to minimize collision.
