A Novel Collision Detection Protocol for Wireless Full-Duplex Networks

EasyChair Preprint no. 11234

6 pagesDate: November 3, 2023


Conventional wireless networks are half-duplex and most of them use contention-based protocols. These protocols usually adopt a principle of contention with collision avoidance and infer a collision occurrence very late from the absence of an acknowledgement after data transmission, thus causing low network performance. Wireless full-duplex enables simultaneous transmission (TX) and reception (RX) on the same channel. By exploiting this functionality, this work proposes a novel design that enables contention with collision detection (CCD) to improve the network performance. With this design, in contention, a node exploits its TX antenna to transmit a signal for channel contention, while exploiting its RX antenna to sense if other nodes are transmitting too. By checking the status of TX and RX antennas, the node can detect the contention collision before data transmission and hence obtains an opportunity to avoid data collision effectively. This work then develops a theoretical model to analyze the collision probability of this design. Extensive simulation results verify the effectiveness of our proposed design in improving wireless network performance.
