Title: COMMUNICATION DEVICE AND COMMUNICATION METHOD
Abstract:
The present invention provides a communication device that carries out wireless data transmission using multiple channels. This communication device serving as a base station is equipped with: a communication unit which transmits and receives wireless signals; and a control unit which controls channels used by subordinate wireless terminals, wherein the control unit assigns a first transmission method to a first wireless terminal using a specific primary channel and assigns a second transmission method different from the first transmission method to a second wireless terminal using a non-primary channel that does not include the primary channel. The second transmission method has a data rate lower than that of the first transmission method or operates at a transmission power level greater than that of the first transmission method.
