Sequentially ordered backoff: Towards implicit resource reservation for wireless LANs

Abstract

In this paper, we present SOBO, a novel hybrid MAC protocol using sequentially ordered backoff in wireless LANs. SOBO eliminates packet collisions and wasted idle backoff slots by introducing implicit resource reservation into 802.11 DCF. In SOBO, the AP divides time into repeating cycles by beacon frames. Exploiting the implicit information of successful… (More)
