802.15.3 MAC Allows Multiple PHYs Area Networks (WPANs)

  • Beacon and PNC commands sent using common base mode

  • Peer to peer communications scheduled at distinct times in a super frame:

    • Peer devices determine which optional PHY rate will be used in time slot (11, 22, 33, 44, 55)

    • PNC only assigns time slot for peer to peer communications.

    • Devices select common rate according to availability and channel conditions

    • Allows addition of new PHY modes without requiring every device to be upgraded at the same time.

Variable uwb phy requirements l.jpg
Variable UWB PHY Requirements Area Networks (WPANs)

  • A large range of use cases have been presented for the TG3a Alternate PHY:

    • Very high rate, isochronous transport of multimedia content (HDTV, Home Theater) between powered and portable devices.

    • Transfer of large amounts of data (video, image, MP3) between portable devices and PCs/media servers.

    • Transfer of individual items between like devices (e.g., exchange images between group capture camera and those cameras carried by the group in the image)

    • Interaction of portable devices sharing a local experience (multi-player gaming)

  • It is hard for a single PHY implementation to satisfy all of these use cases well:

    • High data rate short range transfers vs wireless home theater connectivity

    • A PHY selection that leaves openings for more efficient PHY choices will always be under attack by more appropriate PHYs

Long term success l.jpg
Long Term Success Area Networks (WPANs)

  • 802.15.3/3a defines an UWB solution that is used in large number and variety of devices.

  • As technology improves, any 802.15.3/3a device can coexist and interoperate with all of the current (legacy) and future devices.

  • An ecosystem for WPAN technology evolves because of the ubiquity of the 802.15.3/3a standard in devices (i.e., WiFi)

  • 802.15.3/3a common base mode obtains regulatory approval world wide and one or more optional modes approved for use in a region are enabled by the PNC.

Core ubiquity requirements l.jpg
Core Ubiquity Requirements Area Networks (WPANs)

  • All devices must have a common PHY mode that is used for PNC operation and interoperability between devices until common optional PHY modes can be determined.

  • All common required features must be as simple as possible to ensure efficient implementation of low end devices.

  • Dependence on the common PHY mode must be minimized to allow high-performance devices to get the most performance out of the available channel.

  • It must be possible for separate environments to co-exist within the same channel (child/neighbor piconet).

Dr. John R. Barr, Motorola

Derived features l.jpg
Derived Features Area Networks (WPANs)

  • Very low cost common PHY mode suitable for multiple UWB modulation technologies.

  • The beacon must be sent using the common PHY mode at some regular interval (e.g. every 100 mS or more)

  • The PNC shall be able to designate a different PHY mode for beacons and commands based on the capability of devices in the piconet and channel characteristics.

  • Devices can select the most appropriate PHY mode for communications between any peer device independent of the capabilities of the PNC or other devices in the piconet.
