It is well known that CSMA/CA protocols exhibitvery poor performance in case of multi-hop transmissions,because of inter-link interference due to imperfect carriersensing. We propose to control such an interference by preallocatingtemporal slots in which different sets of networknodes are allowed to contend for the channel access. Theapproach is based on distributed coloring algorithms withlimited signaling overhead that can be customized as a functionof the network topology and traffic load.
