Abstract: front page image
(EN)Technology is disclosed for segregating communications between a base station access point and a user device across the bands in accordance with various quality of service requirements. Universal broadcasts to client devices, low throughput communications (e.g., uplink communications), and initial user device detection may be accomplished using omnidirectional Television White Space (TVWS) broadcasts. Bandwidth intensive communications (e.g., downlink communications) may be handled with directional, beam-steered, WIFI channels. The base station may coordinate steering based upon user device information, such as location information. The technology includes improvements for beam forming, packet handling at the base station, and device association with the directional communications.
(FR)L’invention concerne une technologie pour séparer des communications entre un point d’accès de station de base et un dispositif d’utilisateur entre les bandes conformément à différentes exigences de qualité de service. Des diffusions universelles à des dispositifs de client, des communications à faible débit (par exemple, des communications de liaison montante), et une détection de dispositif d’utilisateur initiale peuvent être accomplies à l’aide de diffusions d’espace blanc de télévision (TVWS) omnidirectionnelles. Des communications intenses de bande passante (par exemple, des communications de liaison descendante) peuvent être traitées avec des canaux WIFI directionnels, à orientation de faisceau. La station de base peut coordonner l’orientation sur la base d’informations de dispositif d’utilisateur, telles que des informations d’emplacement. La technologie comprend des améliorations pour la formation de faisceau, le traitement de paquet au niveau de la station de base, et l’association de dispositifs aux communications directionnelles.
