Abstract

In wireless cyber-physical systems (CPS), more and more traffic with different priorities is required to be timely transmitted over wireless networks such as 802.11. In order to make full use of 802.11 networks to provide quality of service for wireless CPS, we are concerned with the throughput stability issue (i.e., how much traffic load can be sustained in an 802.11 network). Recent studies on the stability in 802.11 networks have arrived at contradictory conclusions. In this paper, we first delve into the reasons behind these contradictions. Our study manifests that the maximum stable throughput is not simply larger than, less than, or equal to the saturation throughput as argued in previ..
