We consider the CSMA/CA based uplink Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol design for a wireless local area network (WLAN) with the use of multi-beam directional antennas at the access point. Our MAC protocol intends to fully utilize the spatial reuse by allowing as many parallel uplink data transmissions as possible. Since all nodes including the access point run in the contention-based MAC protocol, it is not easy to realize multiple collision-free parallel data transmissions while preservingdoi:10.1109/glocom.2005.1578310 dblp:conf/globecom/WangFW05 fatcat:dclk3dmdbvgurkr5mmvmnnf2g4
