This paper considers random access and collision resolution algorithms in the context of spatial division multiple access (SDMA). We focus on the random access phase of HIPERLAN/2 systems currently under standardization at ETSI-BRAN. Based on the dynamic slot assignment, DSA++ medium access control protocol, the influence of SDMA on a contention based access protocol is investigated under collision resolution schemes derived from classical splitting algorithms. Although this work is embedded in the framework of wireless ATM and HIPERLAN/2 systems, the ideas are generally applicable.
