Title: WIRELESS COMMUNICATION METHOD AND WIRELESS COMMUNICATION DEVICE
Abstract:
A wireless communication device that: transmits a beacon frame during a beacon transmission interval (BTI); receives a transmission sector sweep (SSW) frame from another wireless communication device during a beamforming training (BFT) interval after the BTI and, when discovery request information is included in the transmission SSW frame, extracts, from the transmission SSW frame, information about a first transmission sector selected by the other wireless communication device, and selects a second transmission sector from the transmission sectors used by the other wireless communication device and included in the transmission SSW frame; uses the first transmission sector to transmit a feedback frame that included information pertaining to the selected second transmission sector, during a BFT interval; and uses the first transmission sector to transmit a probe response frame that includes information about the selected second transmission sector, during a data transmission interval after the BFT interval.
