throughput

(throo′pŭt″)
1. In hospital management, the sum of the services provided by a health care institution per unit of time. It includes the number of patients treated, admitted, and discharged; the total number of procedures performed; and the quantity of laboratory or radiological services rendered. It is a measure of institutional volume or capacity and a determinant of productivity.
2. In the laboratory, the analysis, processing, or testing of multiple samples. Techniques that foster the rapid or simultaneous processing of multiple samples are called high-throughput.

Figure 2 shows the mechanism of the channel utilization method.
From the measured queue state and channel utilization the network is identified that it is lightly loaded or heavily loaded.
UMon effectively monitors and records the state of the interface and is linked to the channel activity function to estimate the channel utilization.
9% of the channel utilization when S/ = 4, BW = 3MHz and NENT TxOps=4 as shown in Table 2.
The simulation results show that the cognitive radio system with our method increases the channel utilization by 79%~110%, and reduces the energy consumption by 50%~80%.
11 multi-hop transmission depends on following major components: physical signal transmission, which depends on PHY rate and distance; and contention, which depends on channel utilization.
Channel utilization in wireless networks is computed by adding the total time spent on transmission of all data and control frames, as governed by the Channel busy time.
The channel utilization is defined by the level of successful message transmissions relative to the maximum channel capacity.
Collision resolution schemes for improving channel utilization can be classified into the following categories: collision avoidance, collision tolerance, and collision recovery [12].
The principle itself suits well for low-bandwidth bursty traffic, but still brings service degradation issues, related to fairness, unpredictable delay and jitter, high collision rate, altogether leading to inefficient channel utilization.
The AirMaestro Embedded Signal Analyzer also provides estimates of channel utilization based on both Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi devices.
