WLAN Interference control through Antenna Selection (ASEL)

In this work, we present a novel, robust scheme for high density WLAN deployments. This scheme uses well known selection diversity at the transmitter. We show that our scheme increases the number of simultaneous transmissions at any given time without excessive overhead (compared to other schemes such as Multi-user MIMO). Furthermore, this scheme can be easily implemented using existing standards.

The main contributions that come out of this report are:
1. a simple method to tackle interference in the network by selecting the best antenna during 
2. A high potential to reduce the collisions for hidden node terminals. 
3. Further, we also proposed a mechanism to account for the next wave of 802.11ac by allowing simultaneous transmission from multiple APs on the same channel.
