Abstract

In this letter, we present an energy-efficient medium access control (MAC) protocol for distributed full-duplex (FD) wireless network, termed as energy-FDM. The key aspects of the energy-FDM include energy-efficiency, coexistence of distinct types of FD links, throughput improvement, and backward comparability with conventional half-duplex (HD) nodes. Performance evaluation demonstrates the effectiveness of proposed protocol as a viable solution for full-duplex wireless networks.
