This paper analyzes a MAC (Medium Access Control) layer throughput over error-prone channel in the IEEE 802.11ac-based wireless LAN with DCF (Distributed Coordination Function) protocol and A-MPDU (MAC Protocol Data Unit Aggregation) scheme, using theoretical analysis method. The MAC saturation throughput is evaluated by using a PER (Packet Error Rate) on the condition that the number of station, transmission probability, the number of parallel beams and the number of frames in each A-MPDU are variables. When the PER is 10-2 and the number of aggregated MPDUs in each A-MPDU is 20, it is identified that the MAC layer throughput of IEEE 802.11ac can be maximally attained up to a 92.8% of physical transmission rate.
