"The IEEE has standardized the 802.11 protocol for wireless local area networks. The primary Medium Access Control (MAC) technique of 802.11 is called Distributed Coordination Function (DCF). DCF is a Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance (CSMA/CA) scheme with Binary Exponential Backoff algorithm (BEB). DCF describes two techniques to employ for packet transmission: the two-way handshaking technique called basic access mechanism and an optional four way handshaking technique, known as Request-To-Send/ Clear-To-Send (RTS/CTS) mechanism."
