The TCP protocol often suffers from performance problems in conventional single-channel multihop wireless ad hoc networks. The problems arise from hidden node and exposed node issues, which can lead to channel contention in the forward direction between TCP DATA packets that are part of the same TCP flow control window, as well as contention between TCP DATA and TCP ACK packets flowing in opposite directions. In this paper, we propose and evaluate a novel bidirectional multi-channel MAC… CONTINUE READING
