Wireless LAN MAC

[Wireless LAN]
 Medium access control protocols define the rules that allow devices to share the medium in an efficient and orderly manner. In contrast to the wired LAN MAC protocols, wireless LAN MAC protocols should cope with the unique properties of wireless medium: half duplex mode, time varying and bursty channel, location dependent carrier sensing, hidden and exposed terminal problems, etc. These properties of the wireless medium make the design of MAC protocols particularly difficult and challenging.

 Wireless MAC issues in which we are currently interested are as follows:

�� Distributed and Centralized MAC Protocols
�� IEEE 802.11 MAC Protocol Family (802.11a/b/e)
�� Providing QoS Guarantees in Wireless MAC Protocols
