Abstract: Despite the synchronization requirements, Slotted ALOHA Medium Access Control MAC protocol has been successfully implemented in a low power Internet of Things (IoT) applications such as LoRaWan. Although the scheme provides an improvement compared to ALOHA, the protocol has low efficiency in terms of throughput, delay and energy consumption. By implementing a p-persistent approach with a suitable P-Threshold into a Slotted ALOHA, the probability of more than one node simultaneously transmit can be significantly reduced. It is demonstrated that p-persistent Slotted ALOHA can improve all the performances as mentioned earlier by up to by 30% compared to the standard Slotted ALOHA. The model is validated through Monte- Carlo simulations, and the optimal P-Threshold is obtained for different scenarios.
