Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols are designed to coordinate transmission of packets, retransmission of damaged packets, and resolution of collisions during contention periods among stations. In recent years, a wide range of MAC protocols have been proposed or developed for different operating environments with different user requirements. Part of the explanation for having many different MAC protocols is that protocols that are suitable for some applications often would not meet the… CONTINUE READING
