Revisiting Backoff algorithms in CSMA/CA based MAC for channel Reservation in RFID reader Networks through broadcasting

Abstract

Mitigating reader-to-reader collisions is one of the principal challenges in a large-scale dynamic RFID system with a number of readers deployed in order to maximize the system performance (i.e., throughput, fairness and latency). In prior works, contention-based and activity scheduling medium access control (MAC) protocols are commonly used approaches to reduce such problems. Existing protocols typically perform worse in a large-scale RFID dynamic system and require more additional components or are based on unrealistic assumptions. So far, many research efforts have been made to improve the performance or the reliability of Carrier Sense Multiple Access (CSMA) techniques for Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (MANETs) by using an adaptive Backoff schemes. In this paper, we look at these well known solutions that proved their efficiency in high congestion wireless networks. We evaluate the performance and characterize these solutions when they are used to reserve the wireless channel through broadcasting message for reader-to-tag communication. Based on the application requirements, we study their capacity to mitigate collisions, the channel access latency, the average number of successful requests sent per reader and the fairness index in the context of RFID networks.
