  • Patent number: 11129194
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus may be used for sounding for multi-user (MU) scheduling and for signaling and procedures for sub-channel selection. A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) may receive information from an access point (AP) indicating a plurality of sub-channels to use for uplink data transmission as part of uplink MU wireless communications using a carrier sense multiple access (CSMA) wireless medium. The WTRU may transmit, using a plurality of sub-channels, a Physical Layer Convergence Protocol (PLCP) Protocol Data Unit (PPDU) including a preamble portion and a data portion, and, using at least a subset of the plurality of sub-channels, sounding signals to the AP for scheduling MU communications.

  • Publication number: 20210234603
    Abstract: Systems and methods for multidimensional beam refinement procedures and signaling for millimeter wave WLANs. In some embodiments, there are multi-dimensional enhanced beam refinement protocol MAC and PHY frame designs that extend the MAC packet and the PPDU format with or without backwards compatibility. The multiple dimensions may be supported jointly or separately. In other embodiments, the increased data signaled in the eBRP frame designs may be more efficiently signaled with reduced BRP frame sizes, such as through a training type dependent BRP minimum duration selection procedure or use of null data packet BRP frames. In further embodiments, the maximum duration of the interframe spacing between BPR packets may be varied to improve the efficiency of BRP operation.

  • Publication number: 20210168860
    Abstract: Enhanced protocols and devices may be used to alleviate loss of spectrum efficiency in wideband transmission. The protocols may implement a wideband transmission opportunity (TXOP) truncation where one or more of the channels involved in communication over the wideband are released. In one scenario, an access point (AP) may receive, from a wireless transmit receive unit (WTRU), a first CF-End frame that includes a duration field and a basic service set identifier (BSSID) field that includes an individual/group bit. On a condition that the individual/group bit of the BSSID field has a value of one (1), the AP may determine that a scrambling sequence of the first CF-End frame indicates a bandwidth associated with a transmit opportunity (TXOP) being truncated by the WTRU. The AP may then transmit a second CF-End frame at the bandwidth indicated by the scrambling sequence of the first CF-End frame.
