Directional medium access control for ad hoc networks: A cooperation-based approach


In this paper, we describe a cooperation-based approach to design directional medium access control protocol (DMAC) and propose Cooperative Asynchronous DMAC (CA-DMAC) to explore the benefit of directional transmission for the asynchronous ad hoc networks. Currently existing DMAC designs employ extra hardware or network-wide synchronization to overcome the… (More)
