A novel multi-channel MAC protocol with directional antenna for enhancing spatial reuse and bandwidth utilization in WLANs


This paper aims at developing an efficient MAC protocol for wireless LAN by considering multi-channel and directional antennae. Extending IEEE 802.11 to a multi-channel environment not only exploits the bandwidth utilization but also reduces the degree of contentions. Involving directional antennae in designing multi-channel MAC protocol additionally… (More)
