Usage of network load information for rate adaptation purposes
WO 2008102304 A3
Abstract
Adjusting rate adaptation logic. Obtaining in a terminal, node, point or device information containing one or more indications about a network load of a wireless short-range communication network; and adjusting rate adaptation logic in the terminal, node, point or device based on the network load information. The information may be obtained in a network control message, including one or more beacon and probe response frames having information about at least one of a load, an average access delay, available admission capacity, access delay, or some combination thereof. The rate adaptation logic is adjusted 'link based' or ' collision based' depending on station count, channel utilization and average access delay parameters.
