We propose a novel scanning scheme for IEEE 802.11 by equipping Access Points (APs) with multiple Wireless Network Interface Cards (Multi-WNICs), one of which is set to operate in an exclusively reserved channel for the scanning purpose. In this environment, a STAtion (STA) can easily search neighboring APs by scanning the reserved channel. Our simulation results demonstrate that the proposed scheme ultimately reduces the overall scanning time to improve the handoff latency.
