The IEEE 802.11 specifications provide up to 54 Mbps data rates, respectively. The industry is seeking Higher Data Rates (HDR's) over 100Mbps for IEEE 802.11a extension. However, the medium access control (MAC), which they are based upon, is the same. In this paper, we explore the overhead of HDR's to find out whether the MAC is good enough for the increasing data rates and what to expect as the industry seeks higher data rates. We prove that a theoretical throughput upper limit and a theoretica...

The IEEE 802.11 protocol family provides up to 54-Mbps data rate, whereas the industry is seeking higher data rates. This paper shows that a theoretical throughput upper limit and a theoretical delay lower limit exist for the IEEE 802.11 protocols. The existence of such limits indicates that by simply increasing the data rate without reducing overhead, the enhanced performance, in terms of throughput and delay, is bounded even when the data rate goes into infinitely high. Reducing overhead is vi...
