Topology-Independent Medium Access Control

This research area is about studying MAC policies in TDMA environments irrespectively of the underlying topology.

An example of a frame, consisting of three subframes, is depicted for each one of the nodes a, b and c, transmitting under all three policies. Each subframe consists of three slots (0-1-2 , 3-4-5 , 6-7-8 respectively). Slots marked with X are the ones assigned to each node by the Chlamtac-Farago algorithm. Slots marked with p are the slots during which each node may transmit under some probability. The slots during which the node is never allowed to transmit were left blank.
