dc.description.abstract Existing MAC protocols for wireless LAN systems assume that a particular node can operate on only one frequency and that most/all of the nodes operate on the same frequency. We propose a MAC protocol for use in an ad hoc network of mobile nodes using a wireless LAN system that defines multiple independent frequency channels. Each node can switch quickly from one channel to another but can operate on one channel at a time. We simulate the proposed protocol by modifying the wireless extension. Our simulations show that the proposed protocol, though simple, is capable of much better performance in the presence of multiple independent channels than IEEE 802.11which assumes a single frequency channel for all nodes. As expected, the proposed protocol works as well as IEEE 802.11 in the presence of a single channel.
