  • Patent number: 10693533
    Abstract: A first field of a preamble includes a plurality of indications of respective numbers of spatial or space-time streams for respective receivers to enable each receiver among the multiple receivers to determine a respective set of one or more training sequences, in a plurality of training sequences, that corresponds to the receiver. A second field of the preamble includes respective modulation and coding scheme information for the respective receivers. The preamble is generated such that i) the first field is transmitted prior to the plurality of training sequences, and ii) the second field of the preamble is transmitted after the plurality of training sequences are transmitted. A data portion of the multi-user data unit is generated using respective modulation and coding schemes for the respective receivers. The multi-user data unit is transmitted such that data for the respective receivers are transmitted via respective sets of one or more spatial or space-time streams.

  • Patent number: 10624055
    Abstract: To determine a location of a client device in a wireless network having at least first and second network devices, with known locations, one of the network devices transmits a message to the other network device and the other network device responds with an acknowledgement message. A client device receives the message and the acknowledgement message as well as respective times indicating actual times at which the message and the acknowledgement message were processed by one of the first and second network devices. The client device determines its location based on the times at which it received the message and the acknowledgement message and the difference between the actual processing times. This location may be refined by determining an angle between the client device and at least one of the network devices having multiple antennas and being configured for steered beam communications.

  • Patent number: 10470174
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides various aspects related to techniques for generating trigger frames, at an access point (AP), that reduce the overhead associated with triggering an uplink transmission from the wireless station (STA). Features of the present disclosure achieve this by, for example, utilizing a single per-user information field of the trigger to signal a plurality of random access resource units that may be allocated to the one or more STAs in the network. Such a technique is an improvement over the conventional system that require each random access resource unit to be signaled separately in a separate per-user information field (thus increasing the overhead). Additionally, aspects of the present disclosure allow the AP to effectively signal to the STA whether the one or more resources allocated to the at least one STA are a single user resource unit allocation or a multi-user resource unit allocation.

  • Patent number: 10368391
    Abstract: A communication device generates a physical layer (PHY) data unit that includes a PHY preamble and one or more PHY midambles. The communication generates the PHY preamble of the PHY data unit to include i) a signal field having a subfield that indicates that the PHY data unit includes one or more PHY midambles, ii) a short training field (STF) for automatic gain control (AGC) training and synchronization at a receiver, and iii) one or more long training fields (LTFs) for determining a channel estimate at the receiver. The communication generates a data payload of the PHY data unit having i) a set of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) symbols, and ii) one or more PHY midambles. Each of the one or more PHY midambles includes one or more LTFs for determining an updated channel estimate. The communication device transmits the PHY data unit via a wireless communication channel.

  • Publication number: 20190230674
    Abstract: This disclosure provides systems, devices, apparatus and methods, including computer programs encoded on storage media, for the scheduling of wireless resources to multiple wireless stations participating in a simultaneous transmission. Some implementations more specifically relate to the allocation of resource units (RUs) to stations for an uplink multi-user OFDMA (UL MU-OFDMA) transmission. In some implementations, an access point (AP) may adjust a modulation and coding scheme (MCS) of one of the stations based on the results of a power imbalance check. For example, in response to determining that a station failed the power imbalance check, the AP may reduce the MCS assigned to the station from a current value to a reduced value as opposed to simply dropping the station from the scheduled transmission. In some implementations, the AP then performs another power imbalance check based on the reduced MCS.

  • Patent number: 10142778
    Abstract: An apparatus includes an antenna array including at least a first antenna element and a second antenna element separated by a first distance. The apparatus receives a wireless advertising message, having a known bit pattern, via the first and second antenna elements. The apparatus samples a first portion of the known bit pattern from the wireless advertising message received via the first antenna element, and samples a second portion of the known bit pattern from the wireless advertising message received via the second antenna element, and determines a phase difference between the received wireless advertising message at each of the first and second antenna elements by correlating the first sampled portion and the second sampled portion to the known bit pattern. The apparatus then determines an angle of arrival (AoA) of the wireless advertising message based at least in part on the phase difference and the first difference.

  • Publication number: 20180302255
    Abstract: Various aspects of the disclosure relate to communication using a data unit that includes a payload with synchronization information. In some aspects, a first apparatus may transmit a data unit that includes at least one synchronization symbol in the payload. A second apparatus that receives the data unit may thereby recover synchronization information from the data unit even if interference at the second apparatus prevents the second apparatus from recovering synchronization information in a preamble of the data unit. In some aspects, the second apparatus may determine, based on information in the at least one synchronization symbol, whether and/or when to conduct a spatial reuse transmission. In some aspects, the second apparatus may determine, based on information in the at least one synchronization symbol, an amount of time to defer transmission.
