  • Patent number: 10848929
    Abstract: Some demonstrative embodiments include apparatuses, systems and/or methods of terminating a Neighbor Awareness Networking (NAN) path. For example, an apparatus may include logic and circuitry configured to cause a first NAN device to transmit a message including a NAN Data Link (NDL) attribute corresponding to an NDL with a second NAN device, the NDL attribute including a Maximal (Max) Idle Period field to indicate a time period during which the second NAN device is allowed to refrain from transmitting over the NDL without the NDL being terminated; and to allow the first NAN device to terminate all NAN Data Paths (NDPs) over the NDL, if any frame is not received from the second NAN device for at least the time period indicated by the Max Idle Period field.

  • Patent number: 10798555
    Abstract: Described herein are mechanisms to inform a first Neighbor Awareness Networking (NAN) device as to whether or not a second NAN device is connected to a dynamic frequency selection (DFS) master and/or whether the second NAN device is listening to the same DFS master as the first NAN device. In order for NAN client devices to operate in the 5 GHz band and be DFS compliant, all such devices that are communicating in a NAN peer-to-peer manner must either maintain association with a DFS master or must listen to the same DFS master for channel information.

  • Patent number: 10749974
    Abstract: Certain embodiments herein are directed to enabling service interoperability functionality for wireless fidelity (WiFi) Direct devices connected to a network via a wireless access point. A WiFi Direct device may identify various other WiFi Direct devices on a WiFi network for performing a requested service, such as printing content or displaying content to a screen. In so doing, the device may share information associated with an access point to which the device is connected with the other devices, which may also share information associated with an access point to which they are connected. In this way, WiFi Direct devices may discover their connectivity with respect to other devices to utilize a broader array of connection options for implementing a desired service, and hence, may leverage application programming interface (API) modules directed at providing service interoperability functionality between software applications and services requested by the software applications.

  • Patent number: 10708048
    Abstract: Embodiments of a wireless device and methods for rekeying with reduced packet loss in a wireless network are generally described herein. In some embodiments, during rekeying operations a new key for reception may be installed early (i.e., prior to receipt of a rekeying confirmation message). The use of the new key for transmission may be delayed until after receipt of the rekeying confirmation message. The early installation of the new key for reception may allow both the new key and old key to be active at the same time for use decrypting received packets to reduce packet loss during rekeying operations. The rekeying confirmation message may be the fourth message of a four-way handshake for rekeying. In some embodiments, two key identifiers may be alternated between four-way handshakes to prevent deletion of the old key.

  • Patent number: 10681622
    Abstract: Embodiments of a station (STA) and method for ranging in accordance with Neighborhood Awareness Network (NAN) communication are generally described herein. An initiator STA may determine, for a data service that is to be established between the initiator STA and a responder STA on a NAN data link, whether a ranging procedure is to be performed for the data service. As part of the ranging procedure, range measurements or fine timing may be determined. When the ranging procedure is to be performed for the data service, ranging configuration parameters may be included in data request messages, publish messages and other messages sent by the STAs 103. In some cases, the STAs 103 may refrain from exchanging separate messages for communication of ranging information.

  • Patent number: 10681123
    Abstract: The application layer of a first wireless device may be configured to receive a ranging request indication from a MAC layer of the first wireless device, determine whether the MAC layer should respond to the ranging request, and send a ranging response to the MAC layer with an indication of whether to respond to the ranging request. The MAC layer may be configured to decode a ranging set-up request from a second wireless device, where the ranging set-up request comprises time slots. If an auto-response is set to false, send a ranging request indication to the application layer and receive from the application layer a ranging response, and if the auto-response is set to true or the ranging response indicates the MAC layer should respond to the ranging set-up request, select a time slot, and encode a ranging response with an indication of the selected time slot.
