Optimized MAC Protocol With Power Efficiency in Mobile Ad-Hoc Network

Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is an autonomous system of mobile nodes connected by wireless links. The nodes are free to move about and organize themselves into a network. These nodes change position frequently. To accommodate the changing topology special routing algorithms are needed. The Media Access Control (MAC) data communication protocol sub-layer provides addressing and channel access control mechanisms that make it possible for network nodes to access common wireless channel through Distributed Coordination Function (DCF).
