Although MAC protocols have been the subject of extensive study, there has been little study of MAC operation as network density (number of neighbors per node) increases. Although network densities are often low (2-12 neighbors), density can rise in special situations (such as hundreds of people attending a conference in the same room) and new deployments… CONTINUE READING
