  • Patent number: 10104681
    Abstract: This document discloses a solution for enabling overlapping transmissions in a wireless network. An apparatus may be arranged to detect a response to a frame, the response transmitted from a first device as addressed to a second device different from the apparatus and comprising a first value indicating a received signal strength between the first device and the second device. The apparatus may determine a second value indicating a received signal strength of the response in the apparatus and cause transmission of a frame that overlaps with a transmission between the first device and the second device only if the second value in proportion to the first value is below a determined threshold.

  • Publication number: 20160081079
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and computer program for routing messages between terminal devices of a wireless network are provided. A terminal device of the wireless network generates a signaling message to be transmitted as a broadcast or multicast message to at least one other terminal device of the wireless network, causes transmission of the signaling message as a unicast message to the access node and, after transmitting the unicast message to the access node, receives the signaling message from the access node as the broadcast or multicast message. Further explanations: terminal devices (of a WLAN) broadcast or multicast control messages between each other by employing the access node (AP) as a broker for the signaling messages. For instance, channel reservation messages are encapsulated as unicast messages and sent to an AP to broadcast such reservation messages to other terminals competing for the same channel access.
