Methods and arrangements for communications in low power wireless networks


Embodiments may comprise an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (ofdm) system operating in the 1 ghz and lower frequency bands. In many embodiments, the physical layer logic may implement orthogonal frequency division multiplexing symbols encoded with 32 sub-carriers such as twenty data sub-carriers, four pilot sub-carriers, seven guard sub-carriers, and one direct current (dc) sub-carrier.

Method for transmitting ppdu in wireless local area network and the same


A method and device for receiving a data block in a wireless communication system, the method performed by a receiver. The method includes: receiving a physical layer protocol data unit (ppdu) from a transmitter over an operating channel, the ppdu including a signal field, a very high throughput-signal-a (vht-sig-a) field, a very high throughput-signal-b (vht-sig-b) field and a padded data block, generating a first data block by removing zero or more physical padding bits from the padded data block in a physical layer; and generating a second data block by removing zero or more medium access control (mac) padding bits from the first data block in a mac layer..
