Two types of MAC mechanisms namely, random access and reservation can be employed for OFDMA-based wireless LANs. As OFDMA-based wireless networks promise to support heterogeneous applications, researchers assume that applications with and without traffic specifications will coexist. Thus, both reservation-based and random access schemes are required for an OFDMA-based WLAN. Eventually, OFDMA-based wireless LAN will deploy hybrid MAC mechanisms inheriting traits from random access and… Expand
