In the context of ad hoc networks, use of directional antenna can largely reduce the radio interference, thereby improving the utilization of wireless medium and consequently the network throughput. However, in order to fully exploit the capability of directional antenna, whenever a source and a destination engage in a communication, all the neighbors of source and destination nodes should know the direction of communication so that they can initiate new communication in other directions, thus… CONTINUE READING
