Wireless technologies and applications received great attention in recent years. The medium access control (MAC) protocol is the main element that determines the efficiency in sharing the limited communication bandwidth of the wireless channel in wireless local area networks (WLANs). The request-to-send/clear-to-send (RTSICTS) mechanism is an optional(More)
In this paper, we propose a data flushing data transfer (DFDT) protocol. The distributed coordinate function (DCF) of IEEE 802.11 supports data transmissions using the data-ACK method and the request-to-send/clear-to-send (RTS/CTS) method. The data-ACK method has low protocol overhead, however, the transmissions are prone to collision. Although the RTS/CTS(More)
In this paper, we present a data flushing data transfer (DFDT) protocol for IEEE 802.11 wireless ad hoc network. The basic mechanism of DFDT is quite the same as the distributed coordination function (DCF) of the medium access control (MAC) of IEEE 802.11, which uses a random access delay backoff time after a busy medium condition and RTS/CTS dialogue(More)
