    Abstract: A method for multi-band operation by a first transmit/receive unit (TRU) is disclosed. The method may comprise monitoring a plurality of frequency bands including a first band and a second band. A first beacon may be received on the first band and a determination may be made, based on the received first beacon, of a first beacon period start time. The first beacon period start time may correspond to beacons transmitted by the second TRU. A second beacon period start time may be determined, based on the received first beacon, wherein the second beacon period start time corresponds to a beacon for transmission by the first TRU. A beacon signal may be transmitted in a second band, by the first TRU, wherein the beacon signal is timing aligned with beacon signals of the second TRU. The first band and the second band may be adjacent radio bands.

  • Publication number: 20170374034
    Abstract: A method for use in a wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) for configuring a privacy protocol stack profile, including private addresses for the WTRU is described herein. For example, the WTRU may determine if it is in an unknown location and may set a profile of the WTRU to public network, and may set the MAC and IP addresses and other protocol identifiers to random, opaque and non-persistent. The method also includes receiving information about neighboring networks, which may then be used to determine profile options based on context of the neighboring networks. Available profile options based on the determination may be displayed and selected via a user input. Each layer of a protocol stack may be then instructed to use privacy and security settings based on the selected profile, which may include anonymous or random dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) parameters.
