This article presents a new MAC layer protocol for IEEE 802.11 EDCA-based ad-hoc networks with hidden nodes. The key idea of the proposed solution is based on an intelligent two-step reservation procedure which is combined with the advantages of EDCA service differentiation. The new protocol achieves significant performance improvement for high priority traffic (e.g., Voice) in terms of fairness, throughput and average frame delay. It is also compatible with the IEEE 802.11 standard. The… CONTINUE READING
