|20140064142||UPDATING MULTICAST GROUP INFORMATION OF A CLIENT DEVICE OF A WIRELESS MESH NETWORK - Systems, methods and apparatuses for updating multicast group information of a client device of a wireless mesh network are disclosed. One method includes an access node of the wireless mesh network determining multicast group information of the client device that is connected to the access node, and the access node providing routing updates to upstream access nodes and a first upstream gateway, wherein the multicast group information of the client device is included within the routing updates of the client device.||03-06-2014|
|20130258950||CHARACTERIZING TRANSMISSION OF ACCESS NODES WITHIN A WIRELESS NETWORK - Methods, apparatuses and systems for characterizing transmission of access nodes within a wireless mesh network are disclosed. One apparatus includes an access node, wherein the access node is operative to determine a neighbor function based on how many neighboring nodes are affected by signals transmitted from the access node at varying power levels, determine an airtime per link occupied by transmission packets on links to each of the identified neighbor nodes of the neighbor function, determine an airtime metric based on the neighboring nodes and the airtime per link occupied by the transmission packets, calculate combinations of transmission power levels and transmission data rates that jointly minimize an air-time metric, and set a transmission power level and transmission data rate for transmission to a target node based on a path loss between the access node and the target node, and the calculated transmission power levels and data rates.||10-03-2013|
|20110243110||Wireless Network Beacon Timing - An apparatus and method of a wireless network timing transmission of multiple BSSID beacons is disclosed. One method includes a method of a wireless access node within a wireless mesh network timing transmission of multiple BSSID beacons. The method includes the access node identifying multiple personalities of the wireless mesh network, wherein a separate MAC address corresponding with each of the personalities. The access node assigns a beacon type for each of the personalities. During each transmission frame, the access node consecutively transmits a plurality of the beacon types, wherein the different beacon types are consecutively spaced during transmission by a predetermined period. The predetermined period is substantially less than a time duration of each transmission frame.||10-06-2011|
|20110211484||Determining Coverage of a Wireless Network - An apparatus and method of determining coverage of a wireless network is disclosed. The method includes traveling to multiple locations around access points of the wireless network, and for a plurality of client applications, measuring a performance parameter between a test client device and nodes of the wireless network, at a plurality of the multiple locations.||09-01-2011|
|20110188402||Adaptively Capping Data Throughput of Client Devices Associated with a Wireless Network - A methods and apparatuses of adaptively capping data throughput of client devices associated with a wireless network are disclosed. One method includes monitoring an air-time per bit efficiency of each client device associated with the wireless network. A data throughput cap for each client device is adaptively determined based on the air-time per bit efficiency of the client device.||08-04-2011|
|20100202397||Wireless Routing Based On Data Packet Classfication - Apparatuses and methods of using multiple radios of a wireless access node of a wireless network are disclosed. One method includes selecting a 4.9 GHz radio exclusively for public safety data packets, selecting other radios for other types of data packets, and selecting other radios for public safety data packets depending upon specification by a network operator.||08-12-2010|
|20100085920||Method of Subnet Roaming within a Network - Disclosed is an apparatus and method of client device roaming from a home subnet to a foreign subnet of a network. The method includes the client device accessing the network through a first access node of the home subnet, and the client device roaming to a second access node of the foreign subnet, the client device accessing the network through the second access node, the client device maintaining a fixed client IP address, default gateway IP address and IP subnet attachment as the client device roams from the first access node to the second access node.||04-08-2010|
