[Abstract]: A cross-layer medium access control (MAC) scheme is an ISO/OSI Layer 2 protocol which exploits vertical information from any other layer in its decision making. MAC protocols arbitrate between multiple users sharing a finite communications resource. Single-user systems do not need a MAC scheme. This entry examines the basic philosophy underpinning the design of cross-layer protocols for wireless networks, and how cross-layer protocol differs from traditional non-cross-layer protocols. The article concludes with a case-study that applies neural network concepts to the design of cross-layer MAC protocols for single-hop wireless networks using multicarrier OFDM transmissions.
