The IEEE 802.11 standards support the peer-to-peer mode independent basic service set (IBSS), which is an ad hoc network with all its stations within each other's transmission range. In an IBSS, it is important that all stations are synchronized to a common clock. Synchronization is needed for frequency hopping and power saving. The synchronization mechanism specified in the IEEE 802.11 standards has a severe scalability problem. The probability that stations may get out of synchronization is… CONTINUE READING
