An Efficient MAC Protocol for MIMO-OFDM Ad hoc Networks


The problem of designing a good MAC protocol for MIMO-OFDM ad hoc networks is considered in this paper. The proposed protocol reserves a portion of the carriers for the control channel. We call this the directional multiple access with collision avoidance (DMACA) protocol. The advantage of DMACA over methods which use the same channel for control and data… (More)
