  • Patent number: 8743765
    Abstract: Method, apparatus, and computer program product embodiments are disclosed to enable power save modes of operation between mobile wireless devices for direct data transfer in an infrastructure BSS. An example embodiment inserts in a message that is transmitted by the transmitting mobile wireless device, a specified time when a next active direct data transfer period will start so that the devices can remain in power save mode in a direct data transfer link until that time. Then, when the next active direct data transfer period is about to start, the receiving device sends a trigger signal based on the specified time, the trigger signal indicating that the next period is about to start. This confirms to the transmitting device that the receiving device has awakened, so that the transmitting device may start transmitting the data to the receiving device via the direct data transfer link.

  • Patent number: 8526386
    Abstract: A system for allocating bandwidth resources among various mobile stations which are wirelessly connected to a base station. The length of the data queue in each mobile station is determined and information regarding that length is placed in a field in the outgoing data packet. When it is received in the base station, this field is decoded and the queue length information used to allocate bandwidth resources among the mobile station connections. This allows a very quick response to data queue lengths and accordingly better service.

  • Publication number: 20120008604
    Abstract: A system for managing the enablement of beaconing in apparatuses operating in reallocated bandwidth corresponding to a geographic area. For example, apparatuses may initially determine whether they desire to operate as beaconing-type apparatuses or non-beaconing-type apparatuses. The apparatuses may then transmit enablement request frames comprising at least apparatus identification information and the previously determined desired beaconing or non-beaconing apparatus type. Apparatuses may then receive enablement request frames that at least designate the apparatuses as first tier beaconing apparatuses, second tier beaconing apparatuses or non-beaconing apparatuses. The apparatuses may then proceed to configure themselves based on the enablement information.

  • Patent number: 7813307
    Abstract: A system and method for using a single frame to trigger a response from multiple stations in a WLAN network in a scheduled order when in an ad hoc mode. Each responding station responds to the requesting station with an indication of the amount and periodicity of the data stream that the responding stations want to transmit. This allows for an efficient schedule, and a requesting station can go to sleep after it has completed all of its data transactions with the responding stations in the WLAN network.

  • Publication number: 20100220690
    Abstract: Method, apparatus, and computer program product embodiments are disclosed to improve establishing direct links in the Contention Based Period (CPB) of the MAC superframe. Embodiments of the invention enable scheduled and unscheduled data delivery modes (DDM) for a Contention Based Period. Embodiments of the invention reuse capabilities of the private basic service set (PBSS) Control Point (PCP) device like polling during the announcement time (AT) period in order to identify stations that want to initiate data transmission with other stations. That knowledge is further used by the control node (PCP) to facilitate training procedure between stations through the Contention Based Period (CPB) period or Dynamic service period (SP) periods. The behavior of stations within those periods is divided in two phases: the training phase, referred to as the Beamforming Training Time (BFTT) and data schedule negotiation phase referred to as the Data Delivery Mode Negotiation Time (DNT).

  • Publication number: 20080025339
    Abstract: A station of a wireless local area network, the station includes a joining unit configured to join one of a plurality of cliques or to create a new clique, wherein each of the plurality of cliques includes at least one station and wherein each station in a clique can hear all other stations within the clique. The station also includes a communication unit configured to communicate with a server that assigns a unique value to each station in the clique when the station joins the network, wherein the value is used to determine a rank associated with each station within the clique. The server is configured to maintain a system map that defines information associated with each of the plurality of cliques and all of the stations in the network. The station also includes a listening unit configured to listen for a predefined signal such that upon receipt of the predefined signal each station in the clique is configured to begin transmission based on an order determined by a ranking of the stations in the clique.

  • Publication number: 20060285517
    Abstract: Various embodiments are disclosed relating to scheduling data transmissions to improve power efficiency in a wireless network. In an example embodiment, uplink transmissions may be scheduled after the downlink transmissions within the frame sequence. One or more nodes having only scheduled downlink transmissions during the frame sequence may be scheduled for downlink transmissions at or near the start of the downlink transmissions. In another embodiment, one or more nodes having only scheduled uplink transmissions during the frame sequence may be scheduled for uplink transmissions at or near the end of the uplink transmissions. In yet another embodiment, one or more nodes having scheduled both downlink and uplink transmissions during the frame sequence may be scheduled for transmissions near a transition from downlink to uplink transmissions.

    Abstract: Aspects of this invention provide a MC wireless network, and a method, to allocate at least one carrier to a mobile station. The method includes making an initial carrier allocation of M carrier(s) to the mobile station, where M is less than or equal to a total number of carriers N in the MC wireless network; and subsequently re-allocating carriers to the mobile station, based on at least one criterion, by at least one of changing the value of M and moving the mobile station to at least one different carrier. A mobile station that is operable in the MC wireless network for dynamically changing its carrier allocations is also provided.

  • Publication number: 20060140121
    Abstract: In the preferred embodiments, it is first determined whether or not a TCP connection from a sending device to a receiving device in the wireless communications network is in a slow start phase. If the TCP connection is in a slow start phase, then the data to be sent in the TCP connection that is allocated a priority that is higher than the priority allocated to other data to be sent by the sending device. The sending device may be a mobile terminal, a Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN), a device in a WiMAX environment or other network device, and the method of the preferred embodiments may be implemented by software installed and executed on the network device.
