Using directional antennas in mobile ad-hoc networks can greatly improve the spatial reuse and the transmission range. However, it also introduces new kinds of problems arising from directivity. One major problem is deafness. In this paper, we propose a new directional MAC protocol with advance notice strategy, called AN-DMAC (Advance Notice Directional MAC… CONTINUE READING
