Enhanced MC-LMAC: A Multi Channel MAC Protocol In Wireless Sensor Networks

Authors(2) :-Amanjot Kaur, Dr. Trilok C. Aseri

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) consist of a huge number of small, inexpensive sensor nodes distributed over the target area in order to collect the data of interest. Some of the applications of WSNs are intrusion detection, industrial automation, health care monitoring, environmental/earth sensing etc. The WSN MAC Protocols can be classified into four categories: asynchronous, synchronous, frame slotted and multi-channel. This paper gives a brief description of the multi-channel communication in the WSN and divided the various protocolsused in multi-channel communication in the WSN and divided the various protocols used in multi-channel along with their strengths and weaknesses.
