This paper proposes a medium access control (MAC) protocol for ad hoc wireless networks that can utilize multiple channels dynamically to improve performance. IEEE 802.11 standard provides multiple channels for use, but its MAC protocol is designed only for a single channel. We can achieve imp roved throughput with multiple channels because multiple transmissions can take place simultaneously without interfering each other. We modify IEEE 802.11 DCF protocol to enable hosts to utilize multiple…

TLDR
AMCM is a traffic-adaptive multichannel MAC protocol that increases the capacity of wireless network by enabling multiple concurrent transmissions on orthogonal frequency channels using a single half- duplex transceiver and outperforms existing multi-channel MAC protocols under high load at a lower hardware cost and complexity.

TLDR
The initial simulation results show that the PCMA can improve the throughput performance of the non-power controlled IEEE 802.11 by a factor of 2 with potential for additional scalability as source-destination pairs become more localized, thus providing a compelling reason for migrating to a new power controlled multiple access wireless MAC protocol standard.
A multichannel CSMA MAC protocol for multihop wireless networks
TLDR
It is shown via simulations that this new carrier-sense multiple access (CSMA) protocol provides a higher throughput compared to its single channel counterpart by reducing the packet loss due to collisions and the use of channel reservation provides better performance than multichannel CSMA with purely random idle channel selection.

TLDR
This paper considers the design of power-saving protocols for mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) that allow mobile hosts to switch to a low-power sleep mode and proposes three power management protocols, namely dominating-awake-interval, periodically-fully-aw Wake-Interval, and quorum-based protocols, which are directly applicable to IEEE 802.11-based MANETs.

TLDR
The numerical results show that HRMA can achieve much higher throughput than multichannel slotted ALOHA within the traffic-load ranges of interest, especially when the average packet length is large compared to the duration of a dwell time in the frequency hopping sequence, in which case the maximum throughput of HRMA is close to the maximum possible value.
