BoX-MACs: Exploiting Physical and Link Layer Boundaries in Low-Power Networking


We present two MAC layers for ultra-low-power wireless networking, BoX-MAC-1 and BoX-MAC-2. Leading lowpower MACs today reside in a single layer: BMAC exploits only the physical-layer while XMAC utilizes only the link-layer. In contrast, BoX-MAC-1 and BoX-MAC-2 are cross-layer protocols. BoX-MAC-1 incorporates link-layer information into a predominantly… (More)
