Since the introduction of the IEEE 802.11 standard, researchers have moved from the concept of deploying a single channel and proposed the utilisation of multiple channels within a wireless network. This new scheme posed a new problem, the ability to coordinate the various channels and the majority of the proposed works focus on mechanisms that would reduce the adjacent channel interference caused by the use of partially overlapping channels. The proposed idea in this paper borrows the concept of network segregation, firstly introduced for security purposes in wired networks, by dividing a wireless network into smaller independent subnetworks and in collaboration with a channel assignment, the Modulo. Modulo defines a set of rules that nodes should obey to when they transmit data. The utilization of multiple channels under the guidance of Modulo for each subnetwork, proves to improve the performance of an ad-hoc network even in noisy environments.
