Wireless communication is very fast becoming the most frequently used form of communication. Ad-Hoc networks can be easily set up anywhere without any infrastructure cost and its mobility adds to its advantage. Hence with increase in its demand the quality of the setup comes under scrutiny, hence calling for its development. This paper presents the concept of Cooperative MAC protocols. Cooperative MAC protocols are found to be more efficient over 802.11 MAC protocols and improve the network performance substantially. Comparison of 802.11 MAC protocols and CoopMAC protocols on NS2 platform is carried out and successfully proved that cooperative MAC protocols offer much higher throughput
