  • The number of stations existing in the same wireless channel is increasing due to the spread of the wireless LAN devices. CSMA/CA, a conventional wireless LAN protocol, uses a random backoff method. In the random backoff scheme, collision between stations is frequent in a dense region where the number of stations existing in the same channel is several tens or more, and the performance of the performance degradation of such a protocol, the IEEE 802.11ah standard proposed a Restricted Access Window(RAW) wireless access method. RAW improves performance by limiting the number of concurrent access stations by dividing the stations into several groups. In this paper, we propose a method to improve the performance of channel connection by using new group creation, group removal and group relocation algorithm according to traffic change by improving existing RAW method.
