  • Patent number: 10992722
    Abstract: Techniques for facilitating device-to-device (D2D) communications using a high efficiency distributed channel access scheme are generally described herein. In some examples, a communication zone allocated for wireless D2D communications is divided into resource contention and scheduled transmission portions. The resource contention segment may be used to transmit a request message from a transmitting device to a receiving device (a request-to-send message), and transmit a response to the request message from the receiving device to the transmitting device (a clear-to-send message). The response can indicate a time for the data transmission to occur during the scheduled transmission segment. During the scheduled transmission segment, the scheduled data transmission and other D2D data transmissions among the various devices will be performed. In further examples, contention access techniques may be used during the resource contention segment to manage access to the resource channel.

  • Patent number: 9974095
    Abstract: Embodiments of a high-efficiency WLAN (HEW) master station and method for communicating in a Wireless Network are generally described herein. In some embodiments, the HEW master station comprises a receiver configured to receive an uplink multi-user multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) transmission from a plurality of scheduled HEW stations. The uplink MU-MIMO transmission may comprise at least an HEW short-training field (STF) (HEW-STF) transmitted by each of the scheduled HEW stations. The HEW-STFs received from the HEW stations are distinguishable. The master station may process the HEW-STFs received from the scheduled HEW stations to set receiver gain for reception of UL-MIMO data from the scheduled HEW stations. In some embodiments, a single automatic gain control (AGC) setting may be determined from the combined HEW-STF resulting in improved receiver performance in UL MU-MIMO.
