Wireless full-duplexing enables a transmission and a reception on the same frequency channel at the same time, and has the potential to improve the end-to-end throughput of wireless multi-hop networks. In this paper, the authors propose a Media Access Control (MAC) protocol for wireless full-duplex and multi-hop networks called Relay Full-Duplex MAC (RFD-MAC). The RFD-MAC is an asynchronous full-duplex MAC protocol, which consists of a primary transmission and a secondary transmission. The RFD-MAC increases the full-duplex links by overhearing frames, which include 1-bit information concerning the existence of a successive frame, and selecting a secondary transmission node using the gathered information.
