This paper studies a multiple access control protocol, hierarchy schedule sensing protocol, for CDMA wireless data centric networks characterized by high terminal density in a small area. In particular, this paper focuses on the impact of packet collision with capture effect on performance of a network based on the protocol, where a common-coded permission frame beacon is used to schedule-transmission requests to avoid collisions. To further reduce scheduling delay, hierarchical group-based coding is introduced to the scheme. The performance of such a network is analyzed considering packet collisions, capture effect, multipath-interference (Ml), and multiuser interference (MUI) with the help of a Markovian chain model. The average packet collision-rate with and without capture effect is explicitly derived, the performance of the protocol is compared with traditional receiver-based code protocol to show that, despite its low complexity, it is a fairly robust multiple access control protocol featured by uniformly high throughput and low delay.
