Full-duplex communications have emerged as a key technology for next-generation wireless local area networks (WLANs). Although the key enabling technology for full-duplex communications is the self-interference cancellation (SIC) technique in the physical layer, the employment of full-duplex communications has huge potentials to substantially increase the throughput at the medium access control (MAC) layer. At the same time, full-duplex communications pose non-trivial challenges to the MAC protocol design. In this article, we first identify salient problems in supporting full-duplex communications in WLAN MAC protocols. After that, we survey the state-of-the art to address those problems and analyze their pros and cons. Finally, we present open research challenges to improve the effectiveness of full-duplex communications in WLANs.
