MAC Sub-Layer Analysis With Channel Estimation in Broadband Power Line Communication

Broadband Power Line Communication (BPLC) gained a lot of interest because of low cost and high performance communication network in access area. In this paper PHYsical (PHY) layer and Medium Access Control (MAC) sub-layer of BPLC are considered. Furthermore, effects of Bit Error Rate (BER) are analyzed in MAC sub-layer. Powerful Turbo Convolutional Code (TCC) and wideband Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) are used in PHY layer. Carrier Sense Multiple Access (CSMA) and Virtual Slot Multiple Access (VSMA) are taken into consideration in MAC sub-layer.
