Title: OPTIMISING THE CONSUMPTION AND COVERAGE OF A LOCAL AREA NETWORK
Abstract:
The invention concerns a method for managing communication of a terminal (4, 2) in a local area network (3) equipped with a plurality of network access points (10, 11, 12) and a device for managing a communication (PIL). The terminal (4) is connected to a first access point (11) and able to communicate with at least one second access point of the network (10, 12), distinct from the first access point. The method comprises the following steps on the device for managing a communication: - receiving (E11) a notification (MSG1) of the first access point comprising a quality indication (Q_AP11-T4); - sending (E13) a wake-up message (MSG3) to at least the second access point (10, 12); - obtaining (E14) at least one quality indication (MSG4, Q_AP12-T4); - dependent on the quality indication (Q_AP12-T4), selecting (E17) a second access point (12) to assign to the terminal (1).
