We propose a rendezvous scheme based on multi-level orthogonal hopping for multi-channel medium access control protocols. Its benefits compared to random hopping are higher throughput due to higher rendezvous probability. Furthermore, it offers improved fairness over other orthogonal hopping schemes.
