Abstract

See full text

A method of conducting full-duplex transmission between first and second nodes in a communications system having more than two nodes includes the issuing of a start signal on a channel by the first node, wherein the start signal signals that full-duplex transmission is to begin, and identifies the second node as a node with which full-duplex communication is to occur. The method also includes, following the issuing of the start signal, the beginning of full-duplex transmission by the first and second nodes. A node, for use in a network including at least two nodes, is configured to initiate full-duplex communication with any other node by issuing a start signal, where the start signal signals that full-duplex transmission is to begin, and identifies a second node as a node with which full-duplex communication is to occur, and by, following the issuing of the start signal, beginning full-duplex communication.
