This paper proposes an analytical model for the throughput of the enhanced distributed channel access (EDCA) mechanism in the IEEE 802.11p medium-access control (MAC) sublayer. Features in EDCA such as different contention windows (CW) and arbitration interframe space (AIFS) for each access category (AC) and internal collisions are taken into account. The(More)

Abstract—This paper proposes a novel distributed asyn-chronous multi-channel MAC scheme for large-scale Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks, namely, Asynchronous Multi-Channel MAC-Distributed (AMCMAC-D). The(More)
—Terahertz (0.06–10 THz) Band communication is envisioned as a key technology for satisfying the increasing demand for ultra-high-speed wireless links. In this paper, first, a unified multi-ray channel model in the THz Band is developed based on ray tracing techniques, which incorporates the propagation models for the line-of-sight, reflected, scattered,(More)
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a novel networking paradigm which allows the communication among all sorts of physical objects over the Internet. The IoT defines a worldwide cyber-physical system with a plethora of applications in the fields of domotics, e-health, goods monitoring and logistics, among others. The use of cross-layer communication schemes to(More)

—Terahertz Band (0.1-10 THz) communication is envisioned as a key technology to satisfy the increasing demand for ultra-broadband wireless communication. THz Band communication will alleviate the spectrum scarcity and capacity limitations of current wireless systems, and enable new applications both in classical networks and novel nanoscale networks.

A textbook that develops insights into the problems of control and intuition about methods available to solve them, emphasizes design in parallel with analysis techniques, shows the unity among the several individual design techniques and synthesizes them into a "toolbox" of problem-solving methods, and presents this interdisciplinary material in a way that(More)
