Abstract:

Medium access control for devices that share a particular medium is a fundamental problem in communications networks. We present a new protocol for medium access control called floor acquisition multiple access FAMA. Floor acquisition protocols guarantee data packets are received without collisions from other packets. We present FAMA protocols for both single and multiple channel devices operating in ad-hoc packet radio networks. We present analytical and simulation results for FAMA protocols.
