||Typically, MAC protocols for mobile ad hoc networks assume omnidirectional antennas, and use of directional antennas offers many advantages, such as range extension, reduced co-channel interference, increased the degree of spatial reuse, improved the throughput of networks, and reduced the transmission power. There are many wireless ad hoc MAC protocol have been proposed. However, these protocols do not provide significant improvement of network performance because they can’t let nodes to support multiple simultaneous transmissions or receptions ability.|
In this paper, we proposed a newly designed MAC protocols, we used adaptive beam-forming system to reduce the co-channel interference problem, and our proposed MAC protocol will enable nodes with multiple simultaneous transmissions and receptions ability. The handshake mechanism of proposed MAC protocol is that used receiver initialize handshake mechanism such as MACA/BI. We changed the Ready-to-Receive (RTR) control packet, which was used to poll neighbor nodes to be a dual-used control packet, Ready-to-Receive-Transmission (RTRT). Our simulation results will show that our proposed MAC protocol do exploit the advantage of space division multiple access that significantly reduced the problem of poor networks throughput which caused by bottleneck nodes in wireless ad hoc networks.
