Abstract
In this paper we present a new class of MAC protocols for

wireless LANs based on sharing of transmission intentions.

We develop an example protocol implementation based on

distributed, co-operative scheduling of data frames. Sched-

ules are non-binding, requiring minimal negotiation between

nodes. The protocol is implemented on top of standard

802.11 so that backwards compatibility with legacy nodes is

maintained. We have developed efficient algorithms to merge

multiple schedules from neighbouring nodes and find suitable

gaps in which to schedule a given node’s frames. To test the

protocol’s performance, we conducted simulation studies us-

higher throughput and lower delay than 802.11 under high

offered loads, and eliminates frame collisions. (Less)
