Abstract: A block ACK (BTA) scheme has been proposed in IEEE 802.11e to improve medium access control (MAC) layer performance. It is also a promising technique for next-generation high-speed wireless LANs (WLANs) such as IEEE 802.11n. We present a theoretical model to evaluate MAC saturation throughput of this scheme. This model takes into account the effects of both collisions and transmission errors in a noisy channel. The accuracy of this model is validated by NS-2 simulations.
