In this thesis, a cross layer network design approach using effective MAC layer and optimal Network layer design has been proposed and implemented to improve the performance of the wireless networks. For this purpose, new MAC design principles have been proposed for effective scheduling and channel allocation where pipelining techniques proposed for improving the channel utilization. In addition, a new bandwidth allocation technique using partitioning has been proposed in this paper which
