Application: End-to-end acknowledgement in a wireless network (Patent ID: US20240098786A1)

The patent filed by NXP Semiconductors NV discloses a method and apparatus for wireless communications involving a wireless relay device. The device includes a wireless transceiver that receives a block acknowledgement (BA) frame from a first wireless device and generates a second BA frame in response to the first BA frame, which is then transmitted to a second wireless device. The frames contain receiver address, transmitter address, and source or destination address information, with the possibility of multi-station (STA) BA frames and Media Access Control (MAC) control frames.

The wireless relay device and method described in the patent are designed to facilitate wireless communications by enabling the relay of BA frames between different wireless devices. The frames include detailed address information and support multi-hop transmissions through aggregated physical layer protocol data units (PPDUs). The device is compatible with IEEE 802.11 protocol and can share transmit opportunities (TXOP) of the second wireless device, enhancing the efficiency and reliability of wireless communication systems.
