CDR-MAC: A Protocol for Full Exploitation of Directional Antennas in Ad Hoc Wireless Networks


In this paper, we propose a new Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol for full exploitation of directional antennas in wireless networks. The protocol introduces a circular directional transmission of the Request To Send (RTS) control packet, spreading around a station information about the intended communication. The stations that receive the directional… (More)
