IEEE 802.11 MAC, called the Distributed Coordination Function (DCF), employs carrier sensing to effectively avoid collisions, but this makes it difficult to maximally reuse the spatial spectral resource available for exposed terminals. This paper proposes a new MAC algorithm, called Multiple Access with Salvation Army (MASA), which adopts less sensitive… CONTINUE READING
