High speed WPANs are intended to provide multi-media and multi-megabyte transmission services over relatively short distances for a wide range of devices. The long term goal of future high speed WPANs is to support transmission with a data rate of up to 2 Gbps. The W-CHAMB protocol is a link layer protocol for next generation WLANs. It is able to perform multi-hop delivery of high quality multi-media services in a fully distributed manner. In this article, we adapt the W-CHAMB protocol for Gigabit WPANs. The analytical results on the traffic performance and system capacity indicate that the adapted protocol is able to support high amounts of high quality multi-media transmission services in multi-hop Gigabit WPANs.
