New Deafness-Aware MAC Protocol for Directional Antennas in WANET’s
A favorable technique is using directional antennas for high-speed wireless personal area networks and local. A new MAC protocol for wireless ad hoc networks which is referred to as New Deafness-Aware MAC (NDA-MAC) is proposed in this paper. There are many directional MAC protocols which have been proposed, but have not broadly solved the problem of deafness. The authors are proposing NDA-MAC protocol which can differentiate the deafness problem from collisions by using control channels and logical data. So, they are providing a discrete-time Markov chain model for analyzing the deafness impact for both DA-MAC and the current technique.
