In our proposed multi-round contention resolution scheme, the splitting contention period leads to an increased effective window size, so the estimation error for the number of contending stations in k-EC is reduced with a relatively small number of idle slots.
Therefore, bursts scheduling and contention resolution are closely related, since the proper bursts scheduling algorithm can help reduce collisions.
One of the contention resolution strategies applied in core router is the wavelength conversion.
Here, the helper selection phase is further divided into the priority differentiation phase (PDP) and the contention resolution phase (CRP) of the same priority helpers, which can promptly select the unique optimal helper to improve the cooperation efficiency.
priority differentiation phase and contention resolution phase of the same priority helpers.
Hence, if x STAs select any of the slots from the overlapped portion, it is more likely that they collide with any of the y STAs; the y STAs already have picked up the slots in that portion before the x STAs have initiated their (i+1)-th contention resolution round.
SiConnect's POEM technology therefore uses a Synchronous Multiple Access / Contention Resolution (SMA/CR) protocol and an inbuilt QoS management structure that delivers 16 different service levels for prioritising traffic, including audio, video, VoIP and IP data streams.
