Title: DELEGATION OF AUTONOMY BASED ON NETWORK CONDITIONS IN A MULTIPLE ACCESS POINT ENVIRONMENT
Abstract:
Methods, computer readable media, and apparatuses for delegation of autonomy based on network conditions in a multiple access point (AP) environment are disclosed. An apparatus is disclosed comprising processing circuitry, where the processing circuity is configured to decode a first Physical Layer Convergence Procedure (PLCP) Protocol Data Unit (PPDU) from a second AP, the first PPDU including an autonomy grant, the autonomy grant indicating a function and a condition, and where the autonomy grant indicates that when the condition is met that the first access point is authorized to perform the function. The processing circuitry may be further configured to determine whether the condition is met. The processing circuitry may be further configured to decode a second PPDU from a station, the second PPDU requesting the function be performed for the station, and if the determination is that the condition is met, perform the function for the station.
