Such control eliminates the common hidden-node effect even on large scale wireless networks.
frottle works by scheduling client traffic by using a master node to co-ordinate - effectively eliminating collisions!
Developed and tested on the large community wireless network of WaFreeNet, We've found it has given us a significant improvement in network usability and throughput.
