Distributed Assignment Algorithms for Multihop Packet Radio Networks
October 1989 (vol. 38 no. 10)
pp. 1353-1361
New distributed dynamic channel assignment algorithms for a multihop packet radio network are introduced. The algorithms ensure conflict-free transmissions by the nodes of the network. The basic idea of the algorithms is to split the shared channel into a control segment and a transmission segment. The control segment is used to avoid conflicts among nodes and to increase the utilization of the
