In this paper we introduce a simple extension to IEEE 802.11 that supports broadcasting in ad hoc networks. Ad hoc random access MAC protocols often treat unicast and broadcast packets differently. Unicast packets are preceded with MAC layer control frames, such as RTS, CTS and ACK, to ensure that the destination receives the unicast packets. Broadcast packets, on the other hand, are sent blindly without any control frames to assure the availability of the destinations. Therefore, the… Expand
Reliable multicast extension to IEEE 802.11 in ad hoc networks
TLDR
This thesis introduces an efficient and reliable MAC layer multicast/broadcast protocol called SAM (Sequential Acknowledgement Multicast) protocol and uses simulations to investigate the efficiency and reliability of SAM and to compare the performance of SAM to that of other broadcast/multicast protocols.

Reliable MAC layer multicast in IEEE 802.11 wireless networks
TLDR
A reliable Batch Mode Multicast MAC protocol (BMMM), which in most cases reduces the number of contention phases from n to 1, where n is thenumber of intended receivers in the multicast/broadcast, is proposed, which considerably reduces the time required for a multicast-broadcast. Expand

This study simulates a set of representative wireless ad hoc multicast protocols and evaluates them in various network scenarios, finding the relative strengths, weaknesses, and applicability of each multicast protocol to diverse situations. Expand
On-demand multicast routing protocol
TLDR
The protocol, termed ODMRP (on-demand multicast routing protocol), is a mesh-based, rather than a conventional tree-based multicast scheme and uses a forwarding group concept (only a subset of nodes forwards the multicast packets via scoped flooding). Expand
