Power line Communication (PLC) is expected to be a major growth factor in outdoor and inhouse networks in the near future. Due to the different channel conditions, existing wireline MAC protocols cannot be used for power line communication. In this paper we analyze the design issues for a Power line MAC and present a performance evaluation of the wireless MAC protocol IEEE 802.11.
