FH-MAC: A Multi-Channel Hybrid MAC Protocol for Wireless Mesh Networks
  In this article, the authors propose a new hybrid MAC protocol named H-MAC for wireless mesh networks. This protocol combines CSMA and TDMA schemes according to the contention level. In addition, it exploits channel diversity and provides a medium access control method that ensures the QoS requirements. Using ns-2 simulator, we have implemented and compared H-MAC with other MAC protocol used in Wireless Network. The results showed that H-MAC performs better compared to Z-MAC.
