Description:
The primary function of wireless communication protocol is to transmit or receive information, or both, between two nodes. The Media Access Controller (MAC) layer provides the basic channel access, addressing and data transmission/receiving functionalities, on top of the Physical (PHY) layer that handles raw data. In the standard Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model, it serves as the Data Link Layer (DLL). Due to the wide variety of possible implementations in the PHY layer, the MAC is the lowest possible layer to standardize in the software for communication protocols.
