Directional Medium Access Control protocols (DMACs) have been studied for decades. Since most existing DMACs assume an ideal antenna model which does not consider the minor-lobe interference, their performance cannot be guaranteed in practice. Other approaches assuming non-ideal antenna require either extra equipment or clock synchronization, making the system more complicated. It is also observed that directional transmission is rarely discussed in multi-channel scenarios. In this paper, a… CONTINUE READING
