Wireless Ad hoc NETworks (WANETs) are gaining a lot of attention in research lately due to their importance in enabling mobile wireless nodes to communicate without any existing wired or predetermined infrastructures. Control phase plays a critical role in the performance of Time-Division Multiple Access (TDMA)-based wireless networks. Control phase of TDMA-based Medium Access Control (MAC) in wireless sensor networks is proposed. Wireless ad hoc networks depend upon Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols for allocation of channel resources among mobile users. This paper studies TDMA-based timeslot allocation, convergence time and throughput parameters of TDMA using MAC protocol.
