In the field of wireless communication, people are deeply convinced that, when a device receives radio from multiple sources simultaneously, it is very likely to fail due to mutual interference. Hence, cumbersome rules for channel control were considered indispensable in multi-hopping networks.
However, in 2011, it was discovered that if it is the same data to be transmitted and the reception time is accurately aligned, the successful reception rates are high as if there is no interference. It was a great discovery that overturned that common believes.
Concurrent-Transmission Flooding (CTF) is a data transfer method that utilizes this phenomenon to create rapid message broadcastings in a multi-hopping network.
We provide UNISONet, a well-established and field-proven wireless standard based on CTF.
