A New Cooperative MAC Protocol for Wireless LANs

  title={A New Cooperative MAC Protocol for Wireless LANs},
  author={Samir Sayed and Yang Yang},
This paper introduces a new cooperative MAC-protoc l for wireless LANs. This scheme is totally compatible with the legacy sy stems and leverages the multi-rate capability of IEEE systems. The proposed protocol is evaluated via theoretical analysis and the result shows a throughput improvement using the same physical layer as in IEEE802.11b.
