Improving the Channel Utilization of IEEE 802.11p/1609 Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The IEEE 802.11p/1609 standards specify a suite of communication protocols for vehicular communication networks. A new operational mode, called the WAVE (Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments) mode, is defined to enable communication among high-speed vehicles or between a vehicle and a roadside infrastructure network. In the WAVE mode, a mobile/stationary station uses a combined FDMA/TDMA channel access scheme to switch its channel between the control channel and a service channel every 50 ms. The primary purpose of this design is to detect new services announced by other stations.
