Successive interference cancellation (SIC) enables the successful reception of multiple concurrent transmissions and elimination of interference through successive decoding. However, previously proposed distributed medium access control protocols have not exploited SIC. They mostly focused on either interference avoidance, based on the assumption that a receiver can only decode one transmission at a time, or self-interference cancellation, where a node can be a receiver and a transmitter at the… CONTINUE READING
