Due to its fixed assignment nature, the well-known time division multiple access (TDMA) protocol suffers from poor performance when the offered traffic is bursty. In this paper, an adaptive TDMA protocol, which is capable of operating efficiently under bursty traffic conditions, is introduced. According to the proposed protocol, the station which is granted permission to transmit at each time slot is selected by means of learning automata (LA). The choice probability of the selected station is… CONTINUE READING
