A Distributed Queueing Random Access Protocol for a Broadcast Channel

  title={A Distributed Queueing Random Access Protocol for a Broadcast Channel},
  author={Wenxin Xu and Graham Campbell},
For decades there has been a search for a multiple access protocol for a broadcast channel that would provide a performance that approached that of the ideal M/D/1 queue. This ideal performance would provide immediate access at light loads and then seamlessly move to a reservation system at high offered loads. DQRAP (distributed queueing random access protocol) provides a performance which approaches this ideal. Furthermore it is accomplished using as few as three control minislots which… CONTINUE READING
