Title (EN) ADVERTISEMENT AND DISTRIBUTION OF NOTIFICATIONS IN A WIRELESS LOCAL AREA NETWORK (WLAN)
(FR) PUBLICITÉ ET DISTRIBUTION DE NOTIFICATIONS DANS UN RÉSEAU LOCAL SANS FIL (WLAN)
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An Access Point (AP) advertises the availability of notifications, and this advertisement may be received and interpreted by stations (STAs), both by associated STAs and by non- associated STAs. Upon being informed of the availability of the notification message, a STA may take action in order to receive the notification message from the AP. Alternatively, the STA may be able to identify the notification message by analyzing the advertisement. If the contents of the notification message comprise a control message, the STA may act on the control message in a way that influences the STA's behavior. If the contents of the notification message indicate restrictions imposed by the AP, the STA may determine, in view of the restrictions, not to attempt association with the AP.
(FR)Un point d'accès (AP) fait connaître au public la disponibilité de notifications, cette publicité pouvant être reçue et interprétée par des stations (STA), à la fois par des STA associées et par des STA non associées. Une fois qu'une STA a été informée de la disponibilité du message de notification, elle peut entreprendre une action en vue de recevoir le message de notification provenant de l'AP. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, la STA peut identifier le message de notification en analysant la publicité. Si le contenu du message de notification comprend un message de commande, la STA peut agir sur le message de commande de manière à influencer le comportement de la STA. Si le contenu du message de notification indique des restrictions imposées par l'AP, la STA peut déterminer, compte tenu des restrictions, de ne pas essayer de s'associer à l'AP.
