Efficient RTS and CTS Mechanism Which Save Time and System Resources

It is a well-known fact that the forthcoming names are distinctively different: interference range, career sense, and transmission. The given paper reveals the underlying study of disengagement of a request to send (RTS)/ clear to send (CTS) dialog. It was basically adopted under the influence of both; the presence of distributed coordination function of IEEE 802.11 and a sub-layer protocol which is called media access control (MAC) protocol. The demonstration was seen when applying a type of traffic flows such as Constant Bit Rate (CBR), Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), and besides User Datagram Protocol (UDP). When these are applied the output performance in term of throughput shows a very linear topology configuration of the network. To sum up, a new RTS /CTS mechanism was proposed based on the results obtained from the above suggestions. The detailing for the new mechanism showed that a terminal node will be responsible for deciding if it is authorized to use an RTS/CTS protocol dialog to send one of its packets or not. Needless to say, this process will be dynamic in nature.
