Abstract

This paper compares, through analysis and simulation, a number of multichannel MAC protocols for wireless networks. We first classify these protocols into 4 categories based on their principles of operation. We then examine the effects of the number of channels and devices, channel switching times, and traffic patterns on throughput and delay. Our study focuses on a single collision domain.
