Original Abstract

Recently, the combination of the directional antennas within mobile devices has been studied in many areas, because of the advantages of directional antennas in term of power consumption, reducing the interference, and increasing the packet throughput. Directional antennas are exploited in the medium-access control (MAC) protocol design. Therefore the presented paper will discuss the MAC protocol used in an ad hoc network of mobile nodes which is provided with directional antennas. A Location and Mobility Aware (LMA) MAC protocol is adapted for MANETs with directional antennas. However, the main problem of using directional antennas is caused by frequent node mobility. So the movement modeling plays a vital role in wireless Ad hoc networks to predict the location of the node
