This paper evaluates a novel media access control (MAC) method with multiple frame transmission that increases the throughput performance of high speed wireless local area network (LAN) systems. The current MAC protocol has two problems when used in high speed wireless LAN systems: poor efficiency and the failure to match for a multirate mechanism. The frame bursting method solves these problems by allowing multiple frames to be transmitted within one media access period. The performance evaluations of the frame bursting method are performed by computer simulation. The results demonstrate that the frame bursting method can achieve higher system throughput, 10 Mbit/s, than the system throughput performance of conventional systems. Moreover, the results shows that the frame bursting method works well in the wireless LAN systems that employ the multirate mechanism and can achieve higher throughput performance.
