Recent Findings in Vehicle Technology Described by C.Y. Chang and Colleagues (STB-MAC: Staggered Multichannel Traffic Balanced MAC Protocol in Wireless Networks)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Telecommunications Weekly -- Fresh data on Vehicle Technology are presented in a new report. According to news reporting out of Taipei, Taiwan, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "Multichannel medium-access-control (MAC) protocols have attracted much attention because they possess the ability to boost the capacity of wireless networks. In the literature, a staggered channel model has been proposed to handle the rendezvous problem and improve the bandwidth usage."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research, "However, it might cause a channel traffic unbalance (CTU) problem in which certain channels are busy whereas others are idle. It is a great challenge to balance the traffic of each channel because each station finds it difficult to manage the incoming slots in a distributed manner. To cope with the CTU problem, a novel MAC protocol the staggered multichannel traffic-balanced MAC (STB-MAC) protocol, is proposed, which applies the staggered channel model that migrates traffic from busy channels to idle channels."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Performance evaluation reveals that the proposed STB-MAC achieves superior performance in network throughput and packet delay."
