In this paper, the authors study the performance of the IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol and its impact on the transport layer performance in multi-hop wireless ad-hoc networks. They focus on the hidden node problem that effects heavily the end-to-end delay and the packet loss probability. Through a mathematical analysis, they ...Download Now
The authors present in this work a new mechanism based on an innovative hybrid approach for traffic and collision control in wireless ad hoc networks. They combine the well known equation based technique with the measurement based one in a way to obtain a predictive state of the network. Combining ...Download Now
TDMA based MAC protocols can provide a very good utilization of the shared radio resources, especially at high input loads, in synchronized Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs). Global positioning systems like GPS or GALLILEO should provide a very good timing accuracy for synchronization of nodes. This paper presents a medium ...Download Now
