In this paper a semi-analytical procedure isemployed to evaluate the performance of a wireless ATMlocal area network based on the IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol,taking into account the effects of propagation over a real radiochannel. Numerical results are presented as a function of theMAC frame length and of the signal-to-noise ratio in order toevaluate network performance and to provide guidelines forthe overall system design.
