The Spectral Efficiency of Slotted CSMA Ad-Hoc Networks with Directional Antennas

Abstract

The performance of wireless ad-hoc networks (WANET) is mainly limited by its self-interference. This interference can be mitigated by applying smart access mechanisms and smart antennas. In this paper we analyze the performance of WANETs applying two-phase slotted carrier sense multiple access (CSMA) mechanism and utilizing directional antennas. We present… (More)
