What is MACA (Multiple access collision avoidance)?

MACA is utilized in wireless LAN information transmission to stay away from collisions brought about by the hidden station issue and to improve on uncovered station issues. It is utilized in wireless ad hoc networks. At the point when it will send the data frame, informing the other nodes to remain silent. At the point when a node plans to send the information frame, it communicates utilizing a signal known as Request-To-Send (RTS) that incorporates the length of the information frame to communicate. On the off chance that the recipient allows the transmission, it responds back to the sender with a signal known as Clear-To-Send (CTS), which incorporates the length of the information frame that it is about to receive.
