Abstract

Many multiple channel MAC protocols for wireless networks have been proposed to make efficient use of multiple channels where each node has a single radio which allows it to send or receive on one channel at a time. However, most of the proposed protocols are single rendezvous protocols that are subject to the congestion of the control channel. We propose a new parallel rendezvous protocol, McMAC, to avoid control channel congestion so that it can scale to use a large number of channels efficiently. We validate our protocol design using simulation and implementation.
