Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols provide a means to nodes to access the wireless medium efficiently and collision free to the best of their ability. In this paper, the authors provide a survey of MAC protocols developed for Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) in the past based on certain methods and techniques such as multiple radios, multiple channels and specialized beamforming antennas. They discuss some of the MAC protocols designed for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and their applicability in a MANET environment.
