Employing multiple channels is an effective way to improve the performance of wireless networks [2-10]. Some previous works on multiple channels [2-4] assume at least two transceivers and result in a higher cost on hardware requirements. The protocol in [5] uses a single transceiver and divides the beacon interval into two parts: channel negotiation and data transmission. However, the fixed length of channel negotiation interval limits the channel utilization. This paper proposed a new single… CONTINUE READING
