The two-state Markov chain has been widely used to model fading channels in the performance study of upper-layer communication protocols in wireless networks. It can be used to model transmission success/failure based on the physical characteristics of the transmission channel. However, for shared wireless links, packet transmission depends on both the status of the link and the scheduling strategy used. In this poster, we propose a novel four-state Markov model, which takes into consideration the impacts of channel fading and scheduling on packet transmission over shared wireless links. It is further abstracted to an effective two-state Markov chain to facilitate analytical performance evaluation. To demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed model, we apply it to study the throughput, delay and delay jitter of a saturated traffic source, and the packet dropping probability at the network layer for data traffic under a buffer overflow dropping policy. Simulation results to demonstrate the reasonableness of the proposed model are also presented. © 2006 ACM.
