Cognitive MAC Designs for OSA Networks (SpringerBriefs in Electrical and Computer Engineering)

Cognitive MAC Designs for OSA Networks (SpringerBriefs in Electrical and Computer Engineering)

This SpringerBrief presents recent advances in the cognitive MAC designs for opportunistic spectrum access (OSA) networks. It covers the basic MAC functionalities and MAC enhancements of IEEE 802.11. Later chapters discuss the existing MAC protocols for OSA and classify them based on characteristic features.The authors provide new research in adaptive carrier sensing-based MAC designs tailored for OSA, which optimize spectrum utilization and ensure a peaceful coexistence of licensed and unlic…
