Full-Duplex MAC Protocol Design and Analysis

  title={Full-Duplex MAC Protocol Design and Analysis},
  author={Yun Liao and Kaigui Bian and Lingyang Song and Zhu Han},
  journal={IEEE Communications Letters},
The idea of in-band full-duplex (FD) communications has been revived in recent years owing to the significant progress in the self-interference cancellation and hardware design techniques, offering the potential to double spectral efficiency. The adaptations in upper layers are highly demanded in the design of FD communication systems. In this letter, we propose a novel medium access control (MAC) using FD techniques that allows transmitters to monitor the channel usage while transmitting, and… CONTINUE READING
