In this paper, the authors compare the performance of Circular Directional RTS MAC (CDR-MAC) protocol at linear and random topology for wireless ad hoc network. They know that directional antenna gives higher transmission range than that of omni-directional antenna due to its higher gain. Most of the existing research on directional MAC the nodes of the network distributed in random manner. Although with directional antenna they get better spatial reuse than that of omni-directional antenna in the network as well as higher transmission range.
