Title (EN) METHODS AND APPARATUS TO FACILITATE CENTRALIZED MULTI-ACCESS POINT, MULTI-STATION ASSOCIATION IN A COOPERATIVE WI-FI NETWORK
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT UNE ASSOCIATION CENTRALISÉE DE POINTS D'ACCÈS MULTIPLES ET DE STATIONS MULTIPLES DANS UN RÉSEAU WI-FI COOPÉRATIF
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and apparatus to facilitate centralized multi-access point multi-station association in a cooperative Wi-Fi network are disclosed. An example apparatus includes a transmitter to transmit instructions to a group of access points (APs) to transmit a frame to a station (STA), the frame including group AP data related to the 5 group of APs and connectivity testing instructions related to a connectivity status of the STA to the group of APs; and an AP cluster determiner to generate a subset of the group of APs for the STA based on a response to the frame, the subset corresponding to APs whose connectivity satisfies a threshold.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et un appareil permettant une association centralisée de points d'accès multiples et de stations multiples dans un réseau Wi-Fi coopératif. Un appareil donné à titre d'exemple comprend un émetteur pour transmettre à un groupe de points d'accès (AP) des instructions de transmission d'une trame à une station (STA), la trame comprenant des données de groupe d'AP associées au groupe d'AP et des instructions d'essai de connectivité associées à un état de connectivité de la STA au groupe d'AP ; et un dispositif de détermination de grappe d'AP pour générer un sous-ensemble du groupe d'AP pour la STA sur la base d'une réponse à la trame, le sous-ensemble correspondant à des AP dont la connectivité satisfait un seuil.
