This letter proposes a model that allows the effects of hidden terminals on the performance of the S-MAC protocol to be assessed. The model is used to analyze the impact of the number of hidden terminals on the service delay and throughput of the MAC layer. Simulation results show good agreement with our analytical results, which validates the accuracy of our model.
