- In order to solve the problem of the communication asymmetry problems in hybrid ad hoc network because of the introduction of directional antennas, we propose a hybrid MAC protocol termed DFMAC protocol, which achieving data transmission by one hop through the use of exchange RTS by multiple hops. The protocol takes the benefit of directional antennas and can be used by node equipped with Omni-directional antennas, simulation results show that the DFMAC protocol performs well in improving the network throughput.
