Information transfer method for transferring information over link between two nodes, in which frame containing link data is transmitted between nodes such that receiving node can determine link mode.
2001 (English)Patent (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
NOVELTY - A frame containing link data containing link mode for future transmissions is transmitted between nodes. The receiving node determines the link mode using the link data in the frame. Transmissions can then be made from the receiving node to the first node using the determined link node. USE - Link adaptation without transferring link mode information between communicating nodes. ADVANTAGE - Controls link adaptation without explicit link mode signaling. DETAILED DESCRIPTION - The method for transferring information between first and second nodes involves transmitting a frame from the first node to the second node. The frame contains link data enabling the determination of a link mode. Upon receipt of the frame at the second node, a determination is made of a link mode using the link data contained in the frame. Data is transmitted from the second node to the first node using the determined link node. INDEPENDENT CLAIMS are included for; a communications system; DESCRIPTION OF DRAWING(S) - The drawing shows a block diagram of the method of the invention.
