  • Applying single channel ad hoc MAC protocol (such as 802.11b) in multichannel environment (such as the ISM band) has two potential problems: connectivity and load balancing. Connectivity problem refers to the fact that stations in one channel cannot connect to those in the other channels. As resource is partitioned into multiple independent channels, w hen the load of two channels are different, resource in the underloaded channel cannot be used to offload the overloaded channels, and thus… CONTINUE READING
