    Abstract

    IEEE802.11b standard provides 1, 2, 5.5, 11 Mbps data rates. These data rates can be made possible by using different modulation techniques: DBPSK, DQPSK, CCK5.5 and CCK11 respectively. Rate adaptation is the process of dynamically selecting a proper modulation scheme depending on channel conditions in order to improve total throughput. Current rate adaptation protocols deal with unicast links rather than multicast. Channel conditions can be estimated by measuring the Received Signal Strength (RSS) of a feedback message (CTS, ACK). However, IEEE802.11 standard does not provide feedback messages for MAC layer recovery on multicast frames. This is due to collisions which may occur to simultaneous feedback messages from multicast group members. Therefore, in order to rate adapt multicast, a reliable multicast MAC protocol has to be introduced. In this paper, we propose a protocol which provides multicast reliability to WLANs and enhances its throughput by using rate adaptation. Further, we evaluate our protocol by throughput analysis and computer simulation. Simulation results suggest that our protocol performs better than a related/existing protocol in both throughput as well as reliability performances.
