Évaluation des performances du système d'agrégation implémenté dans les réseaux 802.11n

Abstract : After the increase of the capacity of wireless networks, the improvement of the low efficiency allows users to benefit from higher bandwidths. This improvement is partly due to the creation of aggregation's systems. Now, if these systems allow to improve the offered bandwidth, several problems arise about their influence on the behavior of the system. In particular, the case of strong competition for the access to the medium remains unknown. The aggregation studied in this thesis makes a concatenation of several packets in a single frame. This operation allows the packets to share headers. Besides the loss of meaning about the value of a packet, the configuration of such a system remains today obscure for the access provider. As the interests of the provider and its customers may differ, it is also necessary to consider a compromise between their respective requirements. To address these issues, this thesis focuses on a thorough analysis of the behavior and the implications of a packet aggregation system (with IEEE 802.11n as case study). The impact of aggregation on the quality of service provided to an application is quantified through thousands of simulations with Riverbed Modeler. Recommendations are then proposed for the proper setup of the aggregation system to optimize delay and backlog. This thesis focuses on the performances offered to a particular flow in competition for the medium. Its aim is to show the influence of the aggregation on each customer. This thesis also develops an analytical model of the aggregation system using the network calculus theory. The limitations of such a model are demonstrated. Its pessimism is determined using a detailed analysis of the 802.11n aggregation. This study demonstrates a particular relative inadequacy of network calculus to the aggregation system considered. Adjustments of the theory are then proposed, particularly for the calculation of the residuel service offered to a customer. To help the access provider in the configuration of the aggregation system, this thesis lastly proposes an algorithm for a dynamic configuration of the aggregation. This algorithm is established from the recommendations previously established. Its originality is based on the deactivation of the aggregation according to the state of the competing stations. Implemented in Riverbed Modeler, this algorithm shows its efficiency. Then, new problems arise about its real implementation (distributed, centralized, ...).
