In this paper, we introduce a simple model for the enhanced distributed channel access (EDCA) mechanism under saturation conditions. This model captures the operation of the AIFS (arbitration inter-frame space) and contention window differentiation of the EDCA mechanism. Using this model, we analyze the throughput and delay performance of EDCA. The results of our analytical model are then verified using simulations.
