The Internet of Things (IoT) applications is envisioned to require higher throughput protocols because of the increasing data amount. To significantly enhance the network throughput between IoT devices, this paper proposes a new link-layer data forwarding technique that is aware of link correlation (LC) and supports receiver initiated acknowledgement (RI-ACK). We also propose a multicast communication protocol based on LC-aware forwarding and RI-ACKs to further enhance the throughput. In a…
