In this paper, we address the fundamental problem of improving the performance of many-to-one and many-to-many communications. Our approach is Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) based but addresses the limitations of existing TDMA implementations in a novel way. In a nutshell, we combine packets from many senders into a single large packet transmission by exploiting capture effect achieved through fine grained power control at the level of segments within a single packet. We applied our… CONTINUE READING
