Full-Duplex (FD) communication is a promising technique that can potentially double the system throughput compared to conventional Half Duplex (HD) transmission. Recent experiments have demonstrated near-perfect self-interference suppression techniques in the PHY layer to aid the possibility of FD communication. In this talk, we present a Synchronized Mode Full-Duplex (SM-FD) wireless LAN MAC protocol with appropriate modification of the IEEE 802.11 standard. The proposed SM-FD MAC protocol maintains synchronization between nodes and Access Point (AP) to increase efficiency. SM-FD MAC protocol supports WLAN having both FD and HD capable nodes by establishing both symmetrical links and asymmetrical links. To this end, we have utilized the packet-alignment-based capture effect in an efficient way. The proposed SM-FD MAC protocol has been analyzed using a Markov chain model. The analytical results for RTS and data collision probability, saturated throughput, delay, and energy spent per packet transmission have been derived and validated against simulation.
