Finite Buffer Size

The current paper simplifies
mathematical model for evaluating network
performance of IEEE 802.11 based ad hoc
networks. The transmitting stations in the
network can have arbitrary finite buffer space to
store the incoming packets from higher layers.
Statistically, the analysis is based on M/G/1/K
queuing model. Based on renewal theory model,
the main advantage of current model is
application of transform free computations for
calculating the key parameters. The proposed
evaluation strategy simplifies computations
involved in comparison to the complex inverse
transform algorithms present in the literature.
The results obtained from the mathematical
model are validated to prove its accuracy.
