Abstract

Hidden terminal problem is common problem in wireless connection especially in Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) connection. Hidden terminal problem can cause the packet loss becomes high and the throughput becomes low. This condition can be solved using the Request to Send/Clear To Send (RTS/CTS) mechanism. The RTS/CTS mechanism doesn’t work optimal for all of the condition of the connection. The optimization of RTS/CTS can be caused by many conditions and parameters in the connections and two of the parameters are data rate of producing data and value of packets in Constant Bit Rate stream. In this discussion, in order to provide reliable connection WLAN, we primary focus on the performance of RTS/CTS in hidden terminal problem can be evaluated using simulator and one of the simulator is network simulator version 3 (ns-3)
