A survey on prototyping platforms for the development and experimental evaluation of medium access control protocols


The key role played by the medium access control layer toward the performance of wireless communication networks justifies the vast amount of MAC protocols that can be found in the literature. Indeed, most of these works evaluate the performance of the proposals by means of either theoretical analysis or computer-based simulation. Unfortunately, theoretical… (More)
