DQCA is a near-optimum medium access control (MAC) protocol designed for wireless local access networks (WLANs). The protocol operates as a random access scheme under low traffic load and switches smoothly and automatically to a reservation scheme as the traffic grows. The inherent feedback mechanism of DQCA facilitates the implementation of a link… CONTINUE READING
