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

Abstract

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)
