In this paper a multi-channel MAC protocol with dynamic channel allocation (MMAC-DCA) in CDMA Ad Hoc networks is proposed. Under MMAC-DCA, the service sub-channels are dynamically allocated by the RTS/CTS dialogue on the common sub-channel, only when a node has a packet to transmit. In addition, a Markov mode is presented to analyze the performance of MMAC-DCA.
