Carrier sensing is widely adopted in wireless communicati on to protect data transfers from collisions. For example, Distributed Coordination Function (DCF) in IEEE 802.11 standard renders a node to defer its communication if it senses the medium busy. For the durat ion of deferment, each frame carries, in its MAC hea der, a 16-bit number in microseconds during which any overhearing node must defer. However, even if the carrier signal is detected, both ongoing and a new communication can be sim… CONTINUE READING
