In this paper, we analyze a real 802.11 wireless network frame traffic trace, collected from the ACM SIGCOMM 2004 Conference, by calculating its autocorrelation function and Hurst exponents at different time scales. We find this frame traffic trace has second-order self-similar characteristic. This in-depth knowledge of 802.11 wireless network frame traffic can effectively improve the efficiency and performance of network planning, resource management and MAC-layer algorithms.
