This specification defines a sophisticated Logical Link Control Protocol for the WiMedia radio platform based on the standard ECMA 368  and the draft WiMedia Logical Link Control Protocol Specification: Draft 1.08.4 . Our proposal for the Logical Link Control, referred to as WLP - (W)ireless (L)ogical Link Control (P)rotocol, allows a very easy and smooth implementation for an IEEE 802.2 and ECMA 368 to IPv6 connectivity. In contrast to  and  there are a lot of improvements like a more efficient association and disassociation procedure and simplified information structures. Furthermore a fundamental new specification for a Device Management Entity (DME) (announced in  but not specified there) will be introduced, which provides several management and maintenance functions to connect WLP, the Medium Access Control (MAC) and the Application.
Date of Conference: 19-22 Sept. 2010
