Abstract:

This document considers protocols for Aloha type multiaccess channels. It is argued and shown in an important case, that they can be modified to allow new access transmitters to join the system at arbitrary times. This feature, known as limited sensing or free entry, does not reduce throughput performances. In the case presented, the modified algorithm is also robust with respect to feedback errors.
