A Distributed Opportunistic MAC Protocol for Multichannel Wireless Networks


We propose a distributed opportunistic medium access control (MAC) scheme for maximizing the expected aggregate throughput in a multichannel wireless network such as a clustered orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA) network. In our proposed scheme, each user attempts to send only on its best channel and transmits if the best-channel gain is… (More)
