802.11 MAC Series – Basics of MAC Architecture – Part 2 of 3

By CWNP On 02/03/2016 - 63 Comments

Welcome back to the next blog of the 802.11 series. In this blog, we will discuss different types of frames.

As you know, a frame is a unit of data used in the Data-Link layer of the OSI model. Different frames are exchanged between devices to successfully connect to the wireless network. The IEEE 802.11 standard specifies the following three frame types which are further subdivided into subtypes.

Management Frames

Management frames play a very important role in assisting wireless devices in searching and connecting to the wireless network using the authentication and association processes. These frames are exchanged between an access point (AP) and the client devices desiring to join the wireless network. Management frames do not go beyond the Data Link layer of the OSI model and do not carry any upper-layer information. They are also known as Management MAC Protocol Data Unit (MMPDU), and do not contain MSDUs. The following subtypes of the management frame are:

  • Beacon: Contains all the information that the client devices should know before joining any basic service set (BSS).
  • Probe request: Sent by client devices containing the SSID of the network to which they desire to connect.
  • Probe response: Contains the same information that the beacon does with the exception of the traffic indication message (TIM).
  • Authentication: Creates an initial connection between the AP and the client device.
  • Deauthentication: Notification sent by either of the devices, AP or client device, to deauthenticate from each other.
  • Association request: Sent by client devices to the AP to become a part of a basic service set.
  • Association response: Sent by the AP to the client device allowing or disallowing BSS joining.
  • Disassociation: Notification that is sent by either of the devices, AP or client device, to disassociate from each other.
  • Reassociation request: Sent by the client device to the new AP while roaming.
  • Reassociation response: Sent by the new AP to the roaming client device.
  • Announcement traffic indication message (ATIM): Used by ad-hoc client devices for power management.
  • Action: Triggers an action that is to be performed.

Beacon Management Frame

The Beacon subtype is one of the most important management frames. It is normally referred to simply as a beacon. Beacons are the core of the wireless network because they contain all the information that the client devices should know before joining any basic service set created by the AP.

In the infrastructure mode of the basic service set, the AP sends the beacon frames whereas the client devices listen them in order to select the appropriate AP for connection. Beacons are transmitted in the interval of roughly 10 times per second.

In the independent mode of the basic service set or ad hoc, client devices send beacon frames. The following parameters comprise the body of the beacon frame:

  • Time stamp: Helps client devices to keep their clock synchronized with the AP.
  • Spread Spectrum Parameter Sets: Specifies the type of spread spectrum technology used by the AP. The value of this parameter can be FHSS, DSSS, HR-DSSS, ERP, OFDM, HT, or VHT.
  • Channel Information: Specifies the channel used by the AP or an ad hoc network.
  • Data Rates: Specifies the basic and supported data rates by the AP.
  • Service Set Capabilities: Helps to identify the service set from where the beacon frames are generated. The service set can be an infrastructure mode or an ad hoc mode.
  • SSID: Specifies the logical name of the wireless network.
  • Traffic Indication Map (TIM): Contains the AID of the associated client devices whose data is buffered on the AP that need to be delivered.
  • QoS Capabilities: Contains information related to Quality of service and Enhanced Distributed Channel Access (EDDCA).
  • Robust Security Network (RSN) Capabilities: Specifies the information related to cipher and the authentication methods, such as TKIP and CCMP.
  • Vendor Proprietary Information: Contains the vendor specific information.

Control Frames

Control frames reserve the wireless medium for providing contention free environment and sending data acknowledgments so that the transmission happens with as few collisions as possible. Some control frames help client devices to fetch data from the AP when the client devices return from a power save state mode. The following are the subtypes of control frames:

  • Acknowledgment (ACK): Notifies the transmitting client device that the unicast frame has been delivered successfully.
  • Request to Send (RTS): Is used by the transmitting client device that sets the network allocation vector (NAV) for reserving the radio frequency (RF) medium to avoid collision.
  • Clear to Send (CTS): Resets the NAV of the listening devices to reserve the RF medium.
  • CTS to Self: Is used by the AP to ensure that all other client devices must reserve the medium until the transmission of Data and ACK.
  • Power Save Poll (PS-Poll): Uses to request data frames in the Power Save mode.
  • Block ACK Request (BlockAckReq): Requests acknowledgment of correctly received frames.
  • Block ACK (BlockAck): Notifies the multiple frames have been delivered successfully.
  • Control Wrapper: Carriers any other control frame together with the High Throughput Control (HTC) field.

Data Frames

Data frames carry the data payload or Layer 3 information between wireless devices. The layer 3 – 7 MSDU data payload is encrypted to implement data privacy over the wireless network. The Data subtype is one of the most important data frames, which is also known as simple data frame that contains the MSDU upper-layer information. Another special subtype of data frame is the Null function, which is also known as Null Data that does not carry any data payload. The Null Function subtype is also used for implementing power save feature by which client devices inform the AP about their status of power save. The following are the subtypes of data frames:

  • Data (simple data frame): Indicates the MSDU upper layer information encapsulated in the frame body.
  • Null Function (Null data): Notifies the AP to change the power save status by updating the Power Management bit. This frame is used by the client station.
  • QoS Data: Indicates the QoS frame that carries data.
  • QoS Null: Indicates the QoS frame that does not carry any data.
  • QoS Data + CF-ACK: Indicates the QoS frame that carries data.
  • QoS Data + CF-Poll: Indicates the QoS frame that carries data.
  • QoS Data + CF-ACK + CF-Poll: Indicates the QoS frame that carries data.
  • QoS CF-Poll: Indicates the QoS frame that does not carry any data.
  • QoS CF-ACK + CF-Poll: Indicates the QoS frame that does not carry any data.

You will learn more about the above frames in the subsequent blogs of the 802.11 series. In the next blog, we will take a look at the phases of wireless network discovery that help client devices to choose the best wireless network. Til then happy reading!!

Manfred said he didn't know that the Marlins' new owners planned to tear it washington nationals jersers down
In the early moments of atlanta braves jersers the interview, Le Batard asked Manfred whether he knew prior to the recent sale to the group oakland athletics jersers fronted by Bruce Sherman and Jeter whether the new owners planned to slash payroll. After some prodding (and Le Batard's saying that the commissioner was lying), Manfred answered, "We do not get involved in operating-level decisions in the ownership approval process."

"We did not have player-specific plans from the Miami Marlins or any other team that has been in the ownership miami marlins jersers process. Those are decisions that the individual owners make, and they do not have to be cleared by us or approved by us. ... Those are local decisions that really are not part of the approval process. Those are decisions that the individual owners make, and they do not have to be cleared with us or approved by us."

Manfred went on to say that he didn't receive a payroll plan from the Marlins until two days prior to his interview with Le Batard. More: "We don't get into, are you going to trade 'Player X' or 'Player Y' at a particular point in time, nor do we ask them to make a commitment to people before they even got in and made an evaluation of their talent level, their ability to win with the people that st. louis cardinals jersers they have. That's just not how the ownership process works."
wholesale baseball jersers

But some of that may not be true
Here's a key excerpt from a los angeles angels of anaheim jersers must-read Barry Jackson piece in the Miami Herald:

A source directly involved in the Marlins sales chicago white sox jersers process, after hearing the Le Batard cincinnati reds jersers interview, said, via text: "Commissioner said was not aware of [Jeter] plan to slash payroll. Absolutely not true. They request and receive the operating plan from all bidders.

"Project Wolverine [the name for Jeter's plan] called chicago white sox jersers on his group to reduce payroll to $85 million. This was vetted and approved by MLB prior to approval by MLB. Every [Jeter] investor and non investor has the Wolverine financial plan of slashing payroll to $85 million. Widely circulated."

First off, "Project Wolverine" is ludicrously self-important and sinister-sounding, as budget strategies go. That's the name of a secret NSA laboratory deep under the Caballo Mountains in New Mexico, not a financial schematic. Do better, Jeets. Anyhow, there's enough careful phrasing in Manfred's comments ("operating-level decisions," "'Player X' or 'Player Y'") to give him some plausible deniability. However, the idea that he didn't know about plans to engage in yet another demo job by Marlins owners strains credulity.

MAC layer performs the following functions. Not all of these are performed by UE and eNodeB. Also, it should be noted that some of these functions are available in uplink and other in downlink.

What functions are supported

Mapping between logical channels and transport channels
Multiplexing of MAC SDUs from one or different logical channels onto transport blocks (TB) to be delivered to the physical layer on transport channels
Demultiplexing of MAC SDUs from one or different logical channels from transport blocks (TB) delivered from the physical layer on transport channels
Scheduling information reporting
Error correction through HARQ
Priority handling between UEs by means of dynamic scheduling
Priority handling between logical channels of one UE
Logical Channel
Transport format selection

The control entity is responsible for a number of functions including DRX, resource requests, alignment of the uplink timing, power headroom reporting, and so on.

The Random Access (RA) procedure is used to request uplink radio resource to transmit uplink data when the UE does not have any dedicated uplink transmission resource, or to respond to the network’s request.

The HARQ entity performs the transmit HARQ operation and the receive HARQ operation. The transmit HARQ operation includes transmission of transport blocks and, if necessary, retransmission of the transport blocks, and, if configured, reception and processing of HARQ ACK/NACK signaling. The receive HARQ operation includes reception of transport blocks, combining and decoding of the received transport blocks and, if configured, generation of HARQ ACK/NACK signaling.

When the radio resources for a new transmission are allocated, the logical channel prioritization entity instructs the multiplexing and de-multiplexing entity to generate MAC PDUs from the MAC SDUs.

The logical channel prioritization entity also decides how much data from each configured logical channel should be included in each MAC PDU whenever radio resource for a new transmission is available. As stated above, this decision is delivered to the multiplexing and demultiplexing entity.

E-UTRA defines two MAC entities; one in the UE and one in the E-UTRAN. Here is how it looks for user plane and control plane.

The MAC layer is composed of a Hybrid Automatic Repeat request (HARQ) entity, a multiplexing/de-multiplexing entity, a logical channel prioritization entity, and a control entity.

Multiplexing and de-multiplexing entity

The multiplexing and de-multiplexing entity is in charge of composing and decomposing the MAC PDUs and performs (de-) multiplexing of data from several logical channels into/from one transport channel.

Although I would personally like to see an open architecture Macintosh that allowed me to tinker and expand as far as my pocketbook allowed, I'm really happy with the current version of the Macintosh because it allowed me to be more creative than the IBM PC and Apple II ever allowed.


Ross Walder Says:

These are interesting observations. However, they ignore at least two types of users-- the new user and the user with a limited budget. Open architecture carries with it two burdens. The first burden is the ever present need to ensure compatibility of the expansion product to the computer and to the software used by the computer. The adventurous among us (muself included) manage to deal with the stress of getting a new video expansion card or a new memory card to work with a particular piece of software or with another piece of hardware. Many new users and even some experienced users don't have the patience, skill, or contacts to deal with these sorts of problems.
The second burden that accompanies open architecture is the willingness to spend more money to convert a basic 48k, 64k, or 128k computer to something bigger. Money must also be spent to connect a printer, install a modem, expand a video display beyond a basic 40 or 80 column display, and so on. Which is worse, accepting a very complete basic computer system such as the Macintosh which would allow software developers to partially avoid the issue of hardware incompatibility and allows the user to save some money on hardware expansion cards and devices that bring the basic system up to an acceptable standard?
