Scheduling techniques for communication applications using receiver directed broadcast schemes are disclosed. The invention includes techniques for the implicit reservation of receive slots and techniques for the optimization of receiver directed broadcast schedules. The implicit reservation scheme includes the mechanics of implicit reservation. Implicitly reserved slots can be reclaimed by their owners. Further, simultaneous implicit reservations can be identified and resolved. Procedures are also provided for determining the number of channels and slot...
1. A method for optimizing a communication schedule in a network having nodes communicating via scheduled communication slots on a time multiplex basis, comprising the steps of:establishing a receiver directed broadcast communication schedule having a plurality of communication slots;associating a communication link between at least two nodes with at least one communication slot of the communication schedule; andoptimizing the communication schedule to prevent collisions by determining the number of communication slots required to maximize the number of ...
