 Control  frequency band switching and wireless communication apparatus patent thumbnailControl frequency band switching and wireless communication apparatus
In a frequency band switching by fast session transfer (fst), a timeout value (link loss timeout: llt) is determined based on a change in a communication state, a switching setup sequence including a step of transmitting the determined timeout value to a peer wireless station is performed, and frequency switching to the second frequency band is performed when time of the timeout value elapses from when the switching setup sequence is completed. For example, a large timeout value (llt=t1) is set at time of connection establishment, and the llt is changed (llt=t2 to t4) based on, for example, a state of transmission data or a change in a channel state..
