throughput

The amount of work performed by a computer within a given time. It is a combination of internal processing speed (32-bit vs. 64-bit, etc.), peripheral speeds (I/O) and the efficiency of the operating system, other system software and applications all working together. Transactions processed per second (TPS) is one metric commonly used to gauge throughput. See 32-bit computing and 64-bit computing.

Channel utilization can be used to effectively identify the various states of congestion in wireless network.
Presented three sets of simulations show the emergency message delay dependency on hop count in channel utilization best-case, delay dependencies on different loads and reliability best-case.
This method utilizes the channel-slots in an efficient way through the proposed diversity technique and thus increases the channel utilization. Our scheme can effectively assign slots to CR users when a CR user joins and leaves the network.
In this intermixed scheme, idle time slots are reduced and the channel utilization clearly increases.
The comparison in terms of five different metrics, that is, ATTR, degree of overlapping, average channel load, MTTR, and channel utilization, is shown in Table 2.
As frames in a burst are separated only by SIFS and do not require to contend for each packet in the burst, significant amount of channel bandwidth is saved thus improving channel utilization efficiency.
7 shows the network lifetime versus PU channel utilization for the MAC protocols.
And according to the Formula (I) to calculate the channel utilization percentage of the channel in the available channel set within the interference links of the link.
From the service provider's perspective, it's better to increase the channel utilization. However, from the user's point of view, it's better to minimize the GoS cost function.
Thus, for increasing the channel utilization and to decrease the control packet collisions in the control window, instead of using only channel 0 all multiple channels are used in our EM-MAC protocol for selecting communication segments.
Our protocol proposes an algorithm to change the duty cycle adaptively according to channel utilization of media depending on traffic load.
Many parameters affect the throughput of CSMA, and thus it is hard to mention about the effective channel utilization in a lump.
