  • Publication number: 20180352551
    Abstract: Disclosed in some examples are devices, methods, systems, and machine readable media that reduce the burden of a master device of a second wireless connection by utilizing the channel map of a first wireless connection. Since both the first and second wireless connections are located at nearly the same location, the “good channels” are very similar for both connections. Therefore a second wireless connection may take advantage of the channel assessment conducted by a first wireless connection in identifying channels by using one or more channels of the first wireless connection for communications in the second wireless connection.
