  • Patent number: 11963100
    Abstract: Power management operations are performed by devices communicating using multiple bands simultaneously where a first wireless band can be used to send and receive power management control frames for use on a second wireless band of a wireless network. In this way, a device that is in a sleep or dose power management state on a first band can be instructed to enter an awake power management state on the first band based on a communication received over a second band that is currently active and receiving data. Embodiments of the present invention enable power to be conserved when a band is not currently being used, or when there is no more data available (buffered) for a specific band.

  • Patent number: 11943643
    Abstract: An access point (AP) and a station (STA) communicate with each other, with the AP indicating to the STA either or both of a preamble detection (PD) channel and a signaling (SIG) content channel and with the STA being initially monitoring a primary frequency segment of a plurality of frequency segments in an operating bandwidth of the AP. A downlink (DL) or triggered uplink (UL) communication is performed between the AP and the STA during a transmission opportunity (TXOP) such that: (i) during the TXOP, the STA monitors a preamble on the PD channel and decodes a SIG content on the SIG content channel; and (ii) after an end of the TXOP, the STA switches to the primary frequency segment.

  • Patent number: 11943012
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide an apparatus and method for a MAP wireless network that includes a collaborative channel sounding measurement phase to determine channel state information between devices (e.g., the channel state between an STA and a collaborative AP) for efficient configuration of the MAP wireless network and to improve the performance of the MAP wireless networks. The wireless AP and wireless STAs associated with the collaborative APs can simultaneously transmit by applying collaborative beamforming where the interferences between channels nullify each other (e.g., nulling), and the beamforming is performed based on a sounding phase performed by the collaborative APs.

  • Publication number: 20240080736
    Abstract: In an aspect of the disclosure, a method, a computer-readable medium, and an apparatus are provided. The apparatus may be an access point (AP) multi-link device (MLD). In certain configurations, the AP MLD establishes a primary link on a first channel and a non-primary link on a second channel. The AP MLD determines to perform a channel switch operation to switch a first link of the primary link and the non-primary link to operating on a different channel. The AP MLD transmits, on the primary link and prior to the switching of the first link, a first management frame including a first element indicating a target switching time for the switching of the first link. The AP MLD transmits, on the primary link after the switching of the first link, a second management frame indicating that an AP on the first link is in operation.

    Abstract: An access point (AP) multi-link device (MLD) and a non-AP station (STA) MLD perform a fast initial link setup (FILS) procedure to establish wireless communications over a plurality of links. The AP MLD and the non-AP STA MLD communicate over one or more links of the plurality of links upon completion of the FILS procedure with a FILS Discovery frame transmitted in the FILS procedure indicating whether a service set identifier (SSID) of the AP MLD is different from a SSID of an AP of a plurality of APs in the AP MLD transmitting the FILS Discovery frame.

  • Publication number: 20240073773
    Abstract: Various techniques and schemes pertaining to extremely-high throughput (EHT) multi-link maximum channel switching in wireless communications are described. A station (STA) multi-link device (MLD) receives an indication from a reporting access point (AP) affiliated with an AP MLD on one link of multiple links. The STA MLD determines a channel switching time when a reported AP switches from operating in a current channel of the reported AP to operating in a new channel on one other link of the multiple links based on the indication.

  • Patent number: 11917551
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention are drawn to methods and electronic devices capable of performing coordinate spatial reuse for wirelessly transmitting data on a channel in coordination with another wireless AP operating an overlapping BSS using the same wireless channel. The device can perform RSSI measurements and generate Per-RU RSSI reports including the RSSI measurements information for transmission to another wireless AP. The RSSI measurement can be performed by the device based on power levels detected when receiving TB PPDUs transmitted by wireless STAs responsive to trigger frames, for example. Based on the Per-RU RSSI report, a wireless AP can be configured to transmit data to an associated wireless STA without causing significant interference when another AP of the overlapping BSS is also transmitting, and can schedule frames for transmission from associated wireless STAs accordingly.

  • Publication number: 20240064809
    Abstract: Various techniques and schemes pertaining to extremely-high throughput (EHT) ultra-high reliability (UHR) dynamic multi-link switching in wireless communications are described. A first access point (AP) affiliated with a first AP multi-link device (MLD) switches from operating on a first link to operating on a second link in a multi-link operation responsive to detecting the first link as busy. Then, the first AP transmits data to a first station (STA) affiliated with a first STA MLD during a transmission opportunity (TXOP) on the second link. The AP switches back to operating on the first link upon expiry of a period during which the first link is busy.

  • Patent number: 11889435
    Abstract: A first apparatus communicates with a second apparatus via a first link in a first frequency band and via a second link in a second frequency band different than the first frequency band by performing operations. For example, the first apparatus performs an independent enhanced distributed channel access (EDCA) on each of the first link and the second link. Then, the first apparatus obtains a transmit opportunity (TXOP). Next, the first apparatus synchronizes a starting time and/or an ending time of a transmission and a reception on the first link and the second link to avoid causing an in-device coexistence (IDC) interference due to the transmission and the reception occurring simultaneously. Alternatively, the first apparatus refrains from transmitting and receiving on the first link and the second link simultaneously to avoid causing the IDC interference.

  • Patent number: 11882596
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention are drawn to electronic systems that perform EHT operations for a wireless network supporting a 160+160 MHz/320 MHz operating mode. RTS/CTS frame exchange sequences and TXOP truncation can be performed using punctured preambles according to subchannels indicated in a bitmap subfield (e.g., an Allowed Bitmap Subfield). Preamble puncturing is supported for EHT PPDUs transmitted to multiple STAs using MU-RTS/MU-CTS frames transmitted in non-HT duplicate PPDUs. Preamble puncturing is also supported for an EHT PPDU transmitted to a single STA. The RTS and CTS frames can be sent in a non-HT duplicate PPDU with preamble puncturing, for example.

  • Patent number: 11882598
    Abstract: An apparatus (e.g., an access point (AP)) announces to one or more stations (STAs), in a frame, one or more preamble detection (PD) channels in a frequency segment such that each of the one or more STAs monitors a respective one of the one or more PD channels to detect any transmission on the one or more PD channels. The apparatus then wirelessly communicates with at least one of the one or more STAs on one of the one or more PD channels during a transmission opportunity (TXOP).

  • Patent number: 11877321
    Abstract: A multi-link device (MLD) monitors each of first and second links in a multi-link operation in wireless communications, with the first link being a primary link and the second link being a secondary link. The MLD obtains a transmission opportunity (TXOP) on one of the first link and the second link as a result of performing a contention-based channel access on the first link and the second link. The MLD checks channel status of the other of the first link and the second link. The MLD then transmits one or more frames on the first link but not on the second link, on the second link but not on the first link, or on both the first link and the second link synchronously, responsive to the channel status of the other link given the TXOP being obtained on the one of the first link and the second link.
