Scheduled Mesh Access Mechanism for an IEEE 802.11 Mesh Network

Abstract

One of the key issues for an IEEE 802.11-based mesh network is the effectiveness of its distributed listen-before-transmit media access control approach. In this paper we proposed one technique, called scheduled mesh access (SMA), for reducing the impact of interference on a mesh network. The SMA mechanism reserves time on the media for future transmissions… (More)
