IEEE 802.15 WPAN Area Networks (WPANs)Requests for 802.15.3 MAC Changes

Requests for 802 15 3 mac changes
Requests for 802.15.3 MAC changes Area Networks (WPANs)

  • Piconet member announcements. Current draft mandates the PNC to send broadcast info at certain intervals. Request to make this optional. Instead just send the Association IE in the beacon for each DEV with certain interval.

  • MCTA: allow the stream index alone to identify the MCTA. Currently you have no way to send probes between two DEVs without using async.

  • Probe: let DEV ask for association IE. Useful for address resolution.

  • Consider Virtual streams. Would allow us to in an organized fashion multiplex for instance 1394 channels into a stream. May cause conflicts with delayed ACK, needs investigation.

  • As seen in emails on the reflector, ACK policies in general could use clarification (stream create versus data request for instance)

  • Refinement of the PNC handover criteria

    • Request that the MAC address criteria be eliminated as a tie breaker. Work in 1394/15.3 PAL has uncovered issues with this criteria.

  • scan duration

    802.15.3 might need to be changed to specify longer max time to scan for existing PNCs. Current 15.3 scan duration is defined as mMinChannelScan equal to an mMaxSuperframeDuration(65,535 μs) Request a clarification by the IEEE 15.3 task group regarding this parameter.

  • Scan

    • Request a change to the MLME-SCAN.req parameter list to enable scanning for the **MAC address** of an existing PNC.

    • There is currently only an indication of "best" in the "channel rating list" (MLME-SCAN.rsp/cfm primitive parameter). Request that “better” metrics be made available in the MLME-SCAN.confirm primitive. One such metric to request is the distance between the scanning DEV and each of the PNCs it hears during the scanning process.
