Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR COMMUNICATING USING MULTIPLE FREQUENCY BANDS
Abstract:
Various exemplary embodiments of the present disclosure disclose a method and an apparatus for communicating by using multiple frequency bands of an electronic device in a wireless communication system. The electronic device comprises: a first wireless communication circuit configured to perform wireless communication with at least one external electronic device by using a first frequency band; a second wireless communication circuit configured to perform wireless communication with the at least one external electronic device by using a second frequency band; and a processor functionally connected with the first wireless communication circuit and the second wireless communication circuit. The processor is configured to establish a wireless connection with the at least one external electronic device based on the first frequency band by using the first wireless communication circuit; determine whether it is possible to establish a wireless connection with the at least one external electronic device based on the second frequency band by using the second wireless communication circuit, during establishment of the wireless connection with the at least one electronic device based on the first frequency band; when it is not possible to establish a wireless connection with the at least one external electronic device based on the second frequency band according to the determining, perform data communication with the at least one external electronic device based on the first frequency band; and when it is possible to establish a wireless connection with the at least one external electronic device based on the second frequency band, perform data communication with the at least one external electronic device based on the second frequency band.
