Design and Analysis of an Asynchronous Zero Collision MAC Protocol

  title={Design and Analysis of an Asynchronous Zero Collision MAC Protocol},
  author={Jiwoong Lee and Jean C. Walrand},
ABSTRACT This paper proposes and analyzes a distributed MAC protocol that achieves zero collision with no control message exchange nor synchronization. ZC (ZeroCollision) is neither reservation-based nor dynamic TDMA; the protocol supports variable-length packets and does not lose efficiency when some of the stations do not transmit. At the same time, ZC is not a CSMA; in its steady state, it is completely collision-free.
