An analytical model is presented to evaluate the MAC-protocol performance
of the IEEE802.11n-over–fiber network with taking into account probability of
error occurring in the transmitting channel. The results show that the data
throughput with using RTS/CTS or basic access mechanism is suppressed with
increasing amount of errors in the transmitting channel over all the range of
fiber delay as well as it is very sensitive to the number of stations and packet
length. And utilizing the RTS/CTS mechanism shows higher immunity than
basic access mechanism when the network is utilized by high number of users
and errors in transmission channel is relatively high.
