Survey on Reactive Medium Access Control Mechanism for Peer to Peer Heterogeneous Multi Hop Networks


Based on the functionality, wireless multi-hop network (MANETs) can be divided as mobile ad hoc networks, wireless mesh networks (WSN). WSN is similar to MANETs with the application of monitoring, and it is an extension of infrastructure based single-hop wireless network technology. However, these multi-hop technologies have its applications and limitations depending on their implementation and operation. Analysis: In this work our primary focus is to review the current work on developed reactive MAC protocol for multiple -beam smart –antennas in MANETs and WMNs and secondly focus to review the current work on developed efficient and reliable MAC methods for wireless multi-hop networks. Findings: Based on our analysis we find the method to describe the Medium Access Control Problems for Reliable Data Communication. Application: This work is used to develop reactive medium access control mechanism for peer to peer heterogeneous multi hop networks.
