Abstract The direct link assumes that STAs using direct link can use one of AP-Path and DL-Path and the path switch is caused by the link state (e.g., Link RCPI), or PSM. This proposal combines the Link RCPI Request/Report and the Path Switch Request/Response in order to resolve the limitation of the Link RCPI Request/Report and make the Path Selection and Switch more efficient.

Path Selection and Switch Mechanism The Path Selection & Switch Mechanism is required for the following: –Entering a power save state –Using the better one of the two paths (i.e, AP-Path or Direct Link) The better path is decided based on the quality of the following links –AP-Path Link = Sending STA to AP (a) + AP to Receiving STA (b) –Direct Link = Sending STA to Receiving STA (c) ※ Each Link state can be known to ending STA of the links AP STA1STA2 Link ① ② ③ ④ ⑤ ⑥ Two parts are defined for the path selection in TDLS –Radio Measurement (Link RCPI Request/Report) –Path Switch Mechanism

Link RCPI Request/Report Link RCPI RequestLink RCPI Report BSSID STA Address Octets66 BSSIDRCPI1 STA Address RCPI2 Octets6161 A STA may transmit a Link RCPI Measurement Request to an (intended) peer STA to obtain an indication of the RCPI values at the peer STA. The Link RCPI measurement request and report are sent to the peer STA directly. The RCPI information may be used to decide whether to switch over to a direct link for communication with the peer STA.

Concern about Link RCPI Request/Report When should STA send the Link RCPI Request? –The link status changes frequently and randomly. –The requesting STA (STA1) never know when the link status changes. –The only requested STA (STA2) can always know the link status changes AP STA1STA2 Link RCPI Request Periodically? Randomly? After receiving several NAKs?

Four frames are defined to request path switch and respond to the request in Rx and Tx side and have Link Identifier, Dialog Token, and Path information Tx Path Switch Request/Response –A sending STA sends request to peer STA to switch to Direct Link –The peer STA SHALL enable the direct link and respond to the request by sending response frame Rx Path Switch Request/Response –A receiving STA sends request to switch to DL or AP-Path –The Peer STA SHALL use the AP-Path if the request indicates a switch to AP-Path. –The Peer STA can use the DL or not if the request indicates a switch to DL

Concern about Path Switch Mechanism APSTA1STA2 ① ③ ② ④ ⑤ ⑥ ① : Direct Link ③ + ⑤ : AP-Path There may be several reasons for the request There may be several reasons that cannot accept the request Tx Path Switch Response ? Rx Path Switch Response ? Tx Path Switch Request Rx Path Switch Request The Path Switch Request/Response frame cannot indicate why the path switch is requested and whether the request is acceptable or not
doc.: IEEE 802.11-07/2797r00 Submission Oct 2007 Jiyoung et al. Suggestion A STA that can know the link state requests the path switch including the information such as the reason for the request and, if necessary, link state. The STA receiving the request can decide whether the link should be changed or not based on the information included in the request and itself.

doc.: IEEE 802.11-07/2797r00 Submission Oct 2007 Jiyoung et al. Conclusion Link RCPI Request/Report is suggested for the best path selection, but sometimes unnecessary or overhead. If Path Switch Request/Response frame includes the link state information instead of Link RCPI Request/Report, unnecessary Link RCPI request/report is not sent and the best path selection is performed more efficiently.
