"Achieving Single Channel Wireless Full-Duplex"
1:15pm - 1:45pm


In this talk, I'll present the design of a single channel full-duplex wireless transceiver. The design uses a combination of RF and baseband techniques to achieve full-duplexing with minimal effect on link reliability. Experiments on real nodes show the full-duplex prototype achieves median performance that is within 8% of an ideal full-duplexing system.

I'll also discuss potential MAC and network gains with full-duplexing. A full-duplex system can solve some important problems with existing wireless systems including hidden terminals, loss of throughput due to congestion, and large end-to-end delays. I'll present some initial results achieved with an implementation of a full-duplex MAC.
