Abstract

See full text

Methods and devices for communicating data in a wireless communications network are described herein. In one aspect, network layers are offloaded from a station to an access point. In another aspect, flow control is introduced between the station and access point. In another aspect, segmentation is introduced between the station and access point. In another aspect, keep alive is introduced between the station and access point. In another aspect, in addition to MAC layer sequencing and acknowledging, additional sequencing and acknowledging is performed between the station and access point to ensure reliable transmission of data. In another aspect, MAC layer sequencing and acknowledging is disabled. In another aspect, a last MPDU fragment is used to ensure reliable transmission of data.
