Title: METHOD FOR DETERMINING NEIGHBORING STATION, STATION, ACCESS POINT AND COMMUNICATION SYSTEM
Abstract:
Provided are a method for determining a neighboring station in a wireless local area network, and a station, an access point and a communication system using the method. The method comprises: a first station sending a neighbor discovery request message to an access point; the first station receiving from the access point a neighbor discovery response message comprising information about one or more channel use intervals used for neighbor discovery; the first station broadcasting a neighbor discovery message in the channel use interval at preset communication power; the first station receiving from a second station a neighbor response message comprising station information of the second station; and the first station determining a neighboring station on the basis of the station information of the second station. Through the method for determining a neighboring station in a wireless local area network and a station, an access point and a communication system using the method, each station is capable of automatically discovering a neighboring station thereof to relay transmission data, so as to improve the communication performance of the entire wireless local area network, and facilitate the deployment and maintenance of a sensing network based on a wireless local area network by a user.
