DRAND: Distributed Randomized TDMA Scheduling for Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Slot assignment is the core component of TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access) protocols in wireless networks. For a given network where wireless nodes are communicating over the same radio frequency, if two nodes in close proximity transmit at the same time and their signal interference ranges include a node that is the receiver of at least one of the two transmitters, then the signal-to-noise ratio of received data at the receiver significantly degrades.
