Throughput analysis of ad hoc networks using multibeam antennas with priority-based channel access scheduling.

Multibeam antennas (MBAs) can be used in ad hoc networks to improve throughput performance as a result of increased spatial reuse and extended coverage. For random access scheduling (RAS) protocol, contention resolution is required to overcome the potential collisions. Multipath propagation increase...
