Framed slotted aloha (FSA) is a multiple access protocol widely used in wireless communication for its simplicity and effectivity. The theoretical maximum channel utilization of FSA is approximately equal to 0.37 irrespective of the capture effect. In fact, the capture effect is a common phenomenon in wireless communication, which can increase the channel utilization. In this paper, we derive the closed-form expressions of capture probabilities under Rayleigh, Rician and Nakagami-m fading channels, respectively, and further give the optimal frame length which maximizes the channel utilization in the FSA-based networks. The numerical results are given for indicating the capture probabilities under different fading channels and their impacts on the optimal frame length and the maximum channel utilization.
