802.11 R, V & K

Hi all,

 

recently ive been having trouble with my project and very lengthy hand off times for my network. i have recently conducted testing using Iphones in the testing and found they perform perfectly (however to expensive to be used as a solution). after reading about 802.11R, K and V which the Iphone uses to implement fast switching i would like to implement these features on the Edison and my project.

 

 

only problem is im not sure where to even begin looking for comparability and implementation of this standard.

Does any body know a way I could check if the Edisons are capable of utilizing this standard? perhaps this could be baked in? or is it hardware dependant?

Cheers

Hi MBC,

 

 

According to the product brief http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/intel-edison-boards/000005664.html http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/intel-edison-boards/000005664.html Edison only supports 802.11 a/b/g/n. If you wish to add additional standards to the Edison, then you'd need to make modifications to the BCM43340 driver. The BCM43340's driver can be found in https://github.com/01org/edison-bcm43340 https://github.com/01org/edison-bcm43340 . If you wish to modify the Broadcom driver then you should contact https://www.broadcom.com/contact https://www.broadcom.com/contact . Broadcom developed this driver so that it could be used with the Edison so they'll be able to provide a more accurate response.

Do you still need help with this thread, did you make any modifications to the driver?
