The knowledge for channel states can improve the performance of wireless communications systems, and its benefits are outstanding where the channel states vary fast with time. The fast feedback of channel information was malized in the downlink of cdmaZOOO IxEV-DO system and it shows great enhancement in t e r m of total average throughput. However, it dws not scale well since the burden of feedback channels increases proportionally with the increase of users in number. In this paper, we

Since the channel gain is used to choose the backoff counter locally, it is not sent back to the central controller, thereby achieving low overhead and complexity. Oar proposed channel aware MAC scheme adapts to traffic condition dynamically by changing the size of contention window when collision occurs.
