Abstract

The Time-Spread Multiple-Access (TSMA) family of medium access control (MAC) protocols provides guaranteed channel access to each node within a deterministically bounded delay [2,3]. In TSMA, the delay bound grows only logarithmically with network size N, but quadratically with the maximum node degree D O (D2 log2N/log2 D). In this paper we propose the use of a topology control algorithm to bound the maximum node degree within a mobile ad hoc network, which can otherwise vary widely due to mobility. We show that when TSMA runs on top of a network whose topology is controlled, it is an ideal MAC protocol to support multimedia applications.
