Abstract

In today's networks, IEEE 802.11 Wi-Fi is commonplace. While providing great ease of use and mobility, IEEE 802.11 also has many flaws. One of these is contention. Contention is the means that wireless stations compete to determine who gets to transmit. During the contention times, the medium is sitting idle. Idle time equates to wasted bandwidth. This research presents a novel technique to eliminate contention in a wireless network while actually increasing sustained throughput by the use of Direct Sequence Spread-Spectrum Code Division Multiple Access (DS-CDMA).
