Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR SELECTABLY OPERATING RADIO DEVICE IN ALTERNATE OPERATING MODE
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE PERMETTANT DE FAIRE FONCTIONNER UN DISPOSITIF RADIO A L'ALTERNAT DE FAÇON SELECTIVE
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus, and an associated method, for identifying whether a mobile terminal (12) and access point (14) of a WLAN (wireless local area network) are capable of operation pursuant to a proprietary mode. If a determination is made that the communication pair is capable of operation pursuant to the proprietary mode, the mobile terminal is instructed to be activated to operate pursuant to the proprietary mode. Handover procedures are also provided by which better to assure that ongoing communications, during and subsequent to, handover procedures shall also be effectuated pursuant to the proprietary mode. Improved communication quality when the communication pair is operated pursuant to the proprietary mode relative to operation pursuant to a conventional IEEE 802.11 mode is possible.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil, ainsi que le procédé associé, permettant d'identifier si un terminal mobile (12) et un point d'accès (14) d'un réseau local sans fil (WLAN) peuvent fonctionner en un mode propriétaire. S'il a été déterminé que la paire de communication peut fonctionner en mode propriétaire, le terminal mobile reçoit une instruction d'activation lui indiquant de fonctionner en mode propriétaire. L'invention concerne également des procédures de transfert qui sont conçues pour garantir que les communications sortantes, au cours des procédures de transfert et après celles-ci, soient également effectuées en mode propriétaire. Lorsque la paire de communication fonctionne en mode propriétaire, on obtient une meilleure qualité des communications qu'en mode IEEE 802.11 classique.
