  • [Source: WiFi certified passpoint - white paper – Feb 2012]

  • [Source: ComScore, “Digital Omnivores: How Tablets, Smartphones and Connected Devices are Changing U.S. Digital Media Consumption Habits”, 2011]

  • WiFi Market penetration figures

    • WiFi accounts for an increasing portion of total network access

      • 36% in 2010 to a forecasted 46% in 2015

    • More than 37% of mobile phone traffic and more than 90% of tablet traffic is already transported over Wi-Fi in the US.

  • 802.11 Available Channels

  • Field studies showing that non-overlapping channels interfere each other often in practice

Obss background 802 11aa

OBSS Background (802.11aa)

  • Estimates of maximum potential number of APs within range

    • Detached Houses 12

    • Terraced Houses 16

    • Townhouses 25

    • Single Layout Apartments 28

    • Double Layer Apartments 53

  • OBSS traffic gets worse not only because of sharing, but also because of EDCA Overhead. For instance:

    • Is it better to share a 40MHz channel or split to two independent 20MHz channels?

    • Depends on the traffic as when doubled the EDCA overhead increases jeopardizing the gain of a 40MHz channel

802.11 solutions addressing OBSS

  • IEEE 802.11aa

    • Channel Selection

      • Provides methods for QoS APs to select an occupied channel if no free channel is available

        • Different preferred partner selection list for EDCA Admission Control and HCCA

        • AP provides means to aid the channel selection based upon QoS loading of its network as well as ‘overlap’

    • Sharing

      • Provides the capability for QoS APs to share such that an expectation of QoS can be “guaranteed”

        • EDCA Admission Control APs can co-operate

        • HCCA APs can co-operate with EDCA Admission Control APs

        • HCCA APs can co-operate

  • Straw poll question

    • Do you believe that the current set of OBSS management solutions will be enough for the increasing number of 802.11 devices per squared meter in the future?

      • Yes

      • No

      • Abstain

Obss status7

OBSS Status

  • Straw poll question

    • Should 802.11 consider defining further OBSS management solutions in current or future task groups?

      • Yes

      • No

      • Abstain
