The Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol defined in the Wireless ATM Network Demonstrator (WAND) system being developed within the project Magic WAND is presented. Magic WAND is investigating extensions of ATM technology to cover wireless customer premises networks, in the framework of the Advanced Communications Technologies and Services (ACTS) programme, funded by the European Union. The MAC protocol, known as MASCARA, uses a dynamic TDMA scheme, which combines reservation‐ and contention…
