Bandwidth, power and collision are considered as three important resources in wireless networks. Therefore, how to manage these resources becomes a effect on wireless ad hoc network. These effects are not present in wire line networks, and evaluation of available bandwidth in wireless networks a difficult task. Furthermore, in wireless medium the available resources also vary with the protocol and its central network i.e. ad hoc network. In this paper, a collision-aware spectrum assignment scheme has been proposed for bandwidth optical networks allocates the available bandwidth and increases energy efficiency in multi hop collection networks compared to the traditionally used random back off.
