2 doc.: IEEE /0391r0 Submission March 2009 Carlos Cordeiro, Intel CorporationSlide 2 Abstract This presentation discusses existing network architectures and how well they match TGad usages. It then proposes an enhanced network architecture for TGad.

3 doc.: IEEE /0391r0 Submission March 2009 Carlos Cordeiro, Intel CorporationSlide 3 Introduction The usages submitted by the WFA to VHT-SG (IEEE /2988r4) include several usages with a different nature than popular usages (e.g., web browsing, backup) Therefore, one of the most basic issues TGad needs to address is the network architecture it will adopt in support of these new usages –BSS only, IBSS only, both, other? To answer this question, we need to revisit the possible usages of TGad

4 doc.: IEEE /0391r0 Submission March 2009 Carlos Cordeiro, Intel CorporationSlide 4 Usage Models Taken from IEEE /2988r4: Arranged by Category

5 doc.: IEEE /0391r0 Submission March 2009 Carlos Cordeiro, Intel CorporationSlide 5 Usage Models Taken from IEEE /2988r4: “Rank- Ordering for the 2 Example Dimensions”

6 doc.: IEEE /0391r0 Submission March 2009 Carlos Cordeiro, Intel CorporationSlide 6 Key observations from top 3 WFA usages Usages are peer-to-peer (ad-hoc) in nature –No device is dedicated for a particular function –All devices in the network perform the role of a content consumer or content creator or both Some of the devices limited by battery power Access to WLAN infrastructure may not be required in all cases –For all usages under the ‘Wireless Display’ category (1), WFA (IEEE /2988r4) states that “ the wireless network used for may or may not be part of the other operational WLAN network ” 1b: Projection to TV or projector in conf. room (aka in room projection from PC to TV) 3a: Rapid sync-n-go file transfer (figure on left from IEEE /2988r4) 1c: In room gaming

7 doc.: IEEE /0391r0 Submission March 2009 Carlos Cordeiro, Intel CorporationSlide 7 The IBSS architecture IBSS allows peer-to-peer communication without any need for a dedicated device like an AP –TGz addresses peer-to-peer between STAs, but requires an AP Hence, IBSS is well suited to support the top 3 (and other) WFA usages In the IBSS any STA has the ability to transmit beacons, but only one STA successfully transmits it in a beacon interval –Beacon serves as a kind of rudimentary scheduling However, due to directionality in 60GHz [1]-[6], we need to reconsider the IBSS architecture STA 1 STA 2 STA IBSS Architecture Beacon

8 doc.: IEEE /0391r0 Submission March 2009 Carlos Cordeiro, Intel CorporationSlide 8 The TGad Personal IBSS (PBSS) architecture Directionality in 60GHz makes CSMA/CA access of limited use [1]-[6] –A future presentation will address the channel access issues in 60GHz Therefore, we believe that IBSS needs to be enhanced as to introduce network coordination for better support of WFA usages in 60GHz –Improved power saving, QoS support, support to directional communication, spectrum management, etc. The PBSS may not be part of the “other operational WLAN network” –There is no DS behind the PBSS/IBSS (To DS and From DS fields set to 0 in all data frames, including those to the PCP) STA 1 STA 3 (PCP = PBSS Control Point) TGad PBSS Architecture Beacon STA 2

9 doc.: IEEE /0391r0 Submission March 2009 Carlos Cordeiro, Intel CorporationSlide 9 Conclusions The IBSS architecture incorporates important characteristics to meet the requirements of key WFA usages –BSS architecture can still support certain WFA usages However, due to the directionality, channel access and other limitations imposed by operation in 60GHz, the IBSS architecture needs to be enhanced A Personal IBSS (PBSS), managed by a PBSS Control Point (PCP), can be defined to better cope with directionality, QoS, power saving, spectrum management, etc., and hence appropriately support important WFA usages A future presentation will address the channel access issues in 60GHz
