In this study, we introduce a novel OFDMA-based MAC protocol for underwater acoustic sensor networks. The design approach of this protocol exploits the multi-path characteristics of a fading acoustic channel. The goal is to convert the channel into parallel independent acoustic sub-channels that undergo flat fading. Communication between node pairs within the network is then done using subsets of these sub-channels thus fully utilizing the available limited bandwidth while avoiding interference… CONTINUE READING
