An analytical evaluation of traffic flow control strategies for ALOHA-type multiaccess channels is presented. A flow-equilibrium-based approach, which is applicable to slotted ALOHA, unslotted ALOHA, and unslotted selective-reject ALOHA, is used to model contention channels supporting remote stations with either Poisson or finite-user arrival processors, using input buffer limit (IBL) network access control and isarithmic channel access control. The model is used to evaluate the effect of station flow control parameters on system stability and procedures for selecting appropriate retransmission delay in order to determine the resulting throughput delay in order to determine the resulting throughput delay characteristics. Detailed numerical results are presented for an asynchronous selective-reject ALOHA channel shared by a number of generalized remote stations with network and channel access control.
