Abstract
Abstract: Time division multiple access (TDMA) based channel access is one of the most widely used mechanisms in Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANET) with its efficient channel access and collision free transmissions at its core. In this paper, we propose a unique TDMA frame format designed specifically for supporting two-way voice communication in bandwidth efficient manner. The proposed algorithm uses single radio channel for both control and data message exchanges and achieves multi-hop communication. As the ...
