1 CHAPTER 14 Wireless LANs Solutions to Odd-Numbered Review Questions and Exercises Review Questions 1. The basic service set (BSS) is the building block of a wireless LAN. A BSS with- out an AP is called an ad hoc architecture; a BSS with an AP is sometimes referred to as an infrastructure network. An extended service set (ESS) is made up of two or more BSSs with APs. In this case, the BSSs are connected through a distribution system, which is usually a wired LAN. 3. The orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) method for signal gen- eration in a 5-GHz ISM band is similar to frequency division multiplexing (FDM) , with one major difference: All the subbands are used by one source at a given time. Sources contend with one another at the data link layer for access. 5. Network Allocation Vector (NAV) forces other stations to defer sending their data

Unformatted text preview: if one station acquires access. In other words, it provides the collision avoidance aspect. When a station sends an RTS frame, it includes the duration of time that it needs to occupy the channel. The stations that are affected by this transmission create a timer called a NAV. 7. The following shows the relationship: 9. The primary sends on the even-numbered slots; the secondary sends on the odd-numbered slots. Exercises 11. In CSMA/CD , the protocol allows collisions to happen. If there is a collision, it will be detected, destroyed, and the frame will be resent. CSMA/CA uses a tech-nique that prevents collision.
