2 doc.: IEEE /0117r0 Submission January 2010 Michael Bahr, Siemens AGSlide 2 Abstract This submission provides the motivation and description for the inclusion of the TBTT in DTIM beacons of mesh STAs with MCCA enabled. This is proposed in order to allow correct alignment of MCCAOP reservation maps between neighboring mesh stations. This submission is related to the normative text in document 11-10/00xxr0.

3 doc.: IEEE /0117r0 Submission January 2010 Michael Bahr, Siemens AGSlide 3 DTIM Beacon Transmission Times TBTT is only Target Beacon Transmission Time Actual Transmission Time of a Beacon (BTT) might be later TBTT  BTT Beacon Offset = BTT - TBTT

4 doc.: IEEE /0117r0 Submission January 2010 Michael Bahr, Siemens AGSlide 4 MCCAOP Reservations in DTIM Beacons MCCAOP reservations of neighbors (MSTA A) are with respect to the DTIM Beacon Reception time at the recipient of the DTIM Beacon (MSTA B) Changing Beacon Offset of DTIM Beacon receptions will shift the MCCAOP reservations of MSTA A at MSTA B (that receives the DTIM Beacon) Problems: –MSTA B might think there are MCCAOP Reservation conflicts  unnecessary teardown and alternative setup –matching of MCCAOP Reservations as the same MCCAOP reservation might not be possible –there might be real collisions because MSTA B consideres the medium unreserved

5 doc.: IEEE /0117r0 Submission January 2010 Michael Bahr, Siemens AGSlide 5 Shifted MCCAOP Reservations Cause: –TBTT of neighbors is not known –originator of MCCAOP Advertisements takes TBTT as reference point, but recipient of MCCAOP Advertisements has to take reception time of DTIM Beacon as reference point –Beacon timing element is of no help, because it distributes Beacon reception times Solution: –include TBTT in DTIM Beacons –recipient of DTIM beacon can shift MCCAOP Advertisements to the same reference time as originator (MSTAs are synchronized by Neighbor Offset Protocol) –will be also useful together with MCCAOP Advertisments frame and Beacon Timing element

6 doc.: IEEE /0117r0 Submission January 2010 Michael Bahr, Siemens AGSlide 6 TBTT Announce Element Length = 4 octets –covers at least one beacon interval –beacon interval is 2 octets in TUs (1024 µs) –= 2 16 * 2 10 = 2 26  4 octets TBTT –last 4 octets of target beacon transmission time of this beacon in µs –in DTIM beacons if MCCAActivated = true might be bound to existence of MCCAOP Advertisements element might be used in other contexts as well (e.g. MBCA)
