This paper describes a way to include the Arbitrary Interframe Spacing (AIFS) effect in the Enhanced Distributed Channel Access (EDCA) analysis for throughput rate. The effect of AIFS is incorporated using a new correlation measure in the collision probabilities calculation. The results are compared with previous work in references and validated via OPNET simulation. The improvement is shown in the figures. Close match with simulation results is achieved in most of the cases.
