Multiple beam antennas can initiate several data communications concurrently by forming spatially separable beams. However, their concurrent packet reception (CPR) capability is largely governed by the underlying medium access control (MAC) protocol. In this paper, we present an analytical framework to calculate CPR upper bounds of multiple beam antennas using on-demand MAC protocols. The model can be used for adaptively changing transmission probability of the nodes so as to achieve optimal… CONTINUE READING
