Abstract : We consider synchronous random access systems with noisy transmission channels. We model the channel noise as two types of erroneous feedbacks observed by the users. Specifically, with some probabilities, a successful channel slot and an empty channel slot can be seen as collision slots. For such systems, we analyze the stability conditions of a random access algorithm, both in its full sensing and limited sensing versions. We exhibit the superior resistance of the algorithm to the above feedback errors.
