Abstract

The flexible interface between the medium access layer and the custom physical layer of the Rice University Wireless Open-Access Research Platform {WARP} provides a high performance research tool for clean-slate cross layer designs. As we target a community platform, we have implemented various basic PHY and MAC technologies over WARP. Moreover, we are implementing cross-layer schemes such as rate adaptation and cross-layer MIMO MAC protocols. In this demo, we demonstrate the flexibility of the interaction between the WARP PHY and MAC layers by showing the capability to instantaneously change the modulation scheme, disabling/enabling MAC features such as carrier sensing or RTS/CTS 4-way handshake, and different multi-rate schemes.
