Abstract

In this paper, we propose an opportunistic MAC protocol for full duplex communications in WLANs. The proposed MAC protocol solves the problem of channel under-utilization that occur in the FD environment. Depending on the transmission time difference between uplink and downlink transmissions, a secondary backoff is performed to enable additional transmission to the under-utilized parts. Extensive simulation results demonstrate that the proposed MAC protocol can improve the throughput and solve the problem of channel under-utilization.
