In this paper, we want to propose a new reliable multicast MAC protocol based on the PCF (point coordination function) MAC protocol for minimizing the RAK frame transmissions and enhancing the efficiency of the radio bandwidth. Enhancing the BMMM protocol, the proposed MAC protocol reduces the RAK frame transmissions necessary to request the ACK frame transmissions from the recipients by employing the connectivity information among the recipients involved in the multicast frame transmissions of the AP.
