PHY Multiple sections Each appropriate to a frequency range and application CGU NDSL WMAN - 22 Service Specific Convergence Sublayer (SSCS) The CS performs the following functions: accepting higher-layer PDUs from the higher layer performing classification of higher-layer PDUs processing (if required) the higher-layer PDUs based on the classification delivering CS PDUs to the appropriate MAC SAP receiving CS PDUs from the peer entity Currently, two CS specifications are provided Asyncronous Transfer Mode (ATM) CS

Packet CS Such as IP, PPP, Ethernet, etc., Other CSs may be specified in the future. CGU NDSL WMAN - 23 Packet Convergence Sublayer (PCS) Packet convergence sublayer (PCS) The packet CS resides on top of the Common Part Sublayer (CPS) The PCS performs the following functions, utilizing th e services of the MAC sublayer: a) Classification of the higher-layer protocol PDU into the app ropriate connection

b) Suppression of payload header information (optional) c) Delivery of the resulting CS PDU to the MAC SAP associat ed with the service flow for transport to the peer MAC SAP d) Receipt of the CS PDU from the peer MAC SAP e) Rebuilding of any suppressed payload header information ( optional) CGU NDSL WMAN - 24 Packet Process Procedure A classifier is a set of matching criteria applied to each packet It consists of some protocol-specific packet matching criteria (destin ation IP address, for example), a classifier priority, and a reference t o a CID. The service flow characteristics of the connection provide the Q

oS for that packet Several classifiers may each refer to the same service flow. Downlink classifiers are applied by the BS to packets it is transm itting and uplink classifiers are applied at the SS. a packet fails to match the set of defined classifiers. CS/SS shall discard the packet. Packet Classifier(s) CID CID/SFID PHSI mapper

Common Part Sublayer (CPS) The MAC CPS provides the core MAC functionality of system access, bandwidth allocation, connection esta blishment, and connection maintenance: a) System Access b) Bandwidth Request/Allocation c) Connection Establishment/Maintenance e) Quality of Service (QoS) CGU NDSL WMAN - 26 Security Sublayer The security sublayer providing

a) authentication, b) secure key exchange, and c) Encryption Two component protocols Encapsulation protocol Cryptographic suites Key management protocol (PKM) Create and exchange traffic encryption key (TEK) CGU NDSL WMAN - 27 Classifications

A MAC SDU is mapped onto a particular connection for transmission between MAC peers According to protocol-specific packet matching criteria (e.g. destination IP address), classifier priority and a reference to a CID (connection ID) creates an association with the service flow ID (SFID) 32 bits service flow ID (SFID) Conn.

CGU NDSL WMAN - 28 Classifications PHS service flow ID (SFID) Conn. ID (CID) CGU NDSL WMAN - 29 Classifications A MAC SDU is mapped onto a particular connection for transmission between MAC peers

according to protocol-specific packet matching criteria (e.g. IP address), classifier priority and a reference to a CID. SS and BS use multiple classifiers. classifiers Each classifier contains a priority field which determines the search order for the classifier. Searching algorithm is similar to policy-based search algorithm (e.g. Firewall) Firewall Classifiers can be added by dynamic signaling. Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)(SNMP) based operations can only view Classifiers, no add/delete CGU NDSL WMAN - 30

Payload Header Suppression (PHS) For some payload protocols, each payload consists of an 8-bit payload header suppression index (PHSI) followed by the actual payload. A value of zero in the PHSI indicates no payload header suppression has been applied to the PDU. Otherwise, the value in the index identifies the rules for suppression. 8-bit MAC header PHSI refer the payload header suppression field (PHSF) CGU NDSL WMAN - 31

Payload Header Suppression (PHS) If PHS is enabled at MAC connection, each MAC SDU is prefixed with a PHSI, which references the Payload Header Suppression Field (PHSF). The classifier uniquely maps packets to its associated PHS Rule. The receiving entity uses the CID and the PHSI to restore the PHSF. (CID+PHSI PHSF/PHSM/PHSS) When a classifier is deleted, any associated PHS rule shall also be deleted. CGU NDSL WMAN - 32 PHS

operation CGU NDSL WMAN - 33 Payload Header Suppression (PHS) Rule Payload header suppression valid (PHSV) : option to verify or not verify the payload header before suppressing it Payload header suppression mask (PHSM) option to allow sel ect bytes not to be suppressed. Such as IP sequence numbers should not be supressed

Payload header suppression size (PHSS) Payload header suppression field (PHSF) Payload header suppression index (PHSI) Service flow ID (SFID). (SFID) PHS rules are indexed by the combination of (SFID, PHSI) Preconfigured header format or higher-level signaling protocols are outside the scope of specification CGU NDSL WMAN - 34 PHS with masking A,C,E are compressed Only sends B and E

CGU NDSL WMAN - 35 PHS Rules The BS shall define the PHSI when the PHS Rule is c reated The SS or BS may define the PHSS and PHSF. To change the value of a PHSF on a service flow, a n ew PHS rule shall be defined It is possible to partially specify a PHS rule (in particul ar the size of the rule) at the time a service flow is cre ated Values of some fields [for example: IP addresses, User Data gram Protocol (UDP) port numbers, etc.] may be unknown a nd would be provided in a subsequent DSC as part of the act ivation of the service flow

using the Set PHS Rule DSC Action CGU NDSL WMAN - 36 PHS Signaling PHS requires the creation of the following three obje cts: a) Dynamic Service Flow (DSA/DSC/DSD) Addition/Change/Deletion b) Classifier c) PHS rule (PHSI is assigned by BS since BS has many SSs) CGU NDSL WMAN - 37

Connection ID (CID) A unidirectional mapping between BS and SS MAC p eers for the purpose of transporting a service flows tr affic Connections are identified by a connection identifier ( CID) All traffic is carried on a connection, even for service f lows that implement connectionless protocols CID maps to a service flow identifier (SFID), which defines the Quality of Service (QoS) parameters of the service flow associated with that connection. Security associations (SAs) also exist between keyi ng material and CIDs. CGU NDSL WMAN - 38

Connection ID (CID) Connections are identified by a 16-bit CID At SS initialization, three management connections in each direction (uplink and downlink) shall be establish ed between the SS and the BS. The Basic Connection is used for exchanging short, time-ur gent management messages. such as DBPC-REQ/RSP : Downlink Burst Profile Change Req /Rsp, RNG-REQ/RSP : Ranging Req/Rsp The Primary Management Connection is used for exchang ing longer, more delay tolerant MAC management messages . Such as DSA/DSC/DSD_REQ/RSP/ACK, REG_REQ/RSP The Secondary Management Connection is used for transf

erring delay tolerant, tolerant standards based DHCP, TFTP, SNMP, etc., management messages. CGU NDSL WMAN - 39 Connection ID (CID) BS returns Basic CID and Primary CID to SS via RNG-RSP messages. BS returns Secondary CID to SS via REG-RSP messages (optional). The same CID value is assigned to both members (uplink and downlink) of each connection pair. Many higher-layer sessions may operate over the same wireless CID. CGU NDSL WMAN - 40

Connection ID (CID) CGU NDSL WMAN - 41 MAC Protocol CGU NDSL WMAN - 42 MAC overview Wireless link operates with sectorized antenna is capable of handling multiple independent sectors simultaneously (chan nel reuse) Subscriber stations share the uplink to the BS on a demand basis. Four different types of uplink scheduling mechanisms

unsolicited bandwidth grants (CBR) Polling (unicast polling) guarantees applications receive service on a deterministic basis (delay t olerant services) contention procedures contention may be used to avoid individual polling of SSs that have bee n inactive for a long period (multicast/broadcast polling) Bandwidth stealing a portion of the bandwidth allocated in response to a bandwidth request for a connection to send another bandwidth request rather than sending data Piggyback (via grant subheader ; w/o scheduling) CGU NDSL WMAN - 43

MAC overview Service flows provide a mechanism for uplink and do wnlink QoS management. In particular, they are integral to the bandwidth allocation pro cess. An SS requests uplink bandwidth on a per connection basis ( implicitly identifying the service flow). Bandwidth is granted by the BS to an SS as an aggregate of grants in response to per connection requests from the SS. CGU NDSL WMAN - 44 OFDM Frame Structure with TDD Time Frame n-1

CGU NDSL WMAN - 52 Subheader Types

Five types of subheaders Mesh Grant Management Fragmentation Packing FAST-FEEDBACK_Allocation (MIMO) The subheaders are inserted in MAC PDUs immediately foll owing the Generic MAC header Sequence

PDU Differs from concatenation Packing makes use of the connection attribute indicati

ng whether the connection carries fixed-length or va riable-length packets. The construction of PDUs varies for ARQ and non-AR Q connections with respect to packing and fragmentat ion syntax CGU NDSL WMAN - 56 Packing for non-ARQ connections Packing fixed-length MAC SDUs (Generic MAC Header T ype = 000000) the Request/Transmission Policy shall be set to allow packing and prohibit fragmentation, and the SDU size shall be included in DSAREQ message when establishing the connection If the MAC SDU size is n bytes, the receiver unpacks simply by kno wing that the length field in the MAC header will be nk+j, where k i s the number of MAC SDUs packed into the MAC PDU and j is the

size of the MAC header and any prepended MAC subheaders. no added overhead CGU NDSL WMAN - 57 Packing for non-ARQ connections Packing variable-length MAC SDUs indication of where one MAC SDU ends and another begins. the MAC attaches a Packing subheader (PSH) to each MA C SDU unfragmented MAC SDUs and MAC SDU fragments may bot h be present in the same MAC PDU CGU NDSL WMAN - 58 Packing for non-ARQ connections

Simultaneous fragmentation and packing allows effici ent use of the airlink when a Packing subheader (PSH) is present, the frag mentation information for individual MAC SDUs or MA C SDU fragments is contained in the corresponding P acking subheader. Else (If no PSH is present), the fragmentation informa tion for individual MAC SDU fragments is contained in the corresponding Fragmentation subheader (FSH) CGU NDSL WMAN - 59 Packing for non-ARQ connections PSH

MAC PDUs may have fragments from the same or differen t SDUs, including a mix of first transmissions and retransm issions. The 11-bit BSN and 2-bit FC fields uniquely identify each f

ragment or non-fragmented SDU. CGU NDSL WMAN - 61 Payload Type Payload Type indicates whether MAC subheaders (P acking/Fragmentation/Grant) acking/Fragmentation/Grant present or not. packing/ fragmentation 000100 000011 packing/

The fragmentation subheader contains information that ind icates the presence and orientation in the payload of any fra gments of SDUs. (e.g. long Ethernet packet) The grant management subheader is used by an SS to co nvey bandwidth management needs to its BS.

Mesh Networks Mesh systems typically use omnidirectional or 360 steerable an tennas, but can also be co-located using sector antennas. Directed Mesh (DM) : The realization of a physical mesh using s ubstantially directional antennas. Nodes : systems in Mesh networks Mesh BS : a system that has a direct connection to backhaul servic es outside the Mesh network. Mesh SS : all the other systems of a Mesh network Neighbor : The nodes with which a node has direct links Neighborhood :Neighbors of a node form a neighborhood (one-h op) Extended neighborhood : all the neighbors of the neighborhood (two-hops)

CGU NDSL WMAN - 128 Mesh Networks Using distributed scheduling, all the nodes including the Mesh BS shall coordinate their transmissions in their two-hop neighborhood and shall broadcast their schedules (available resources, requests and grants) to all their neighbors. (Optionally) the schedule may also be established by directed uncoordinated requests and grants between two nodes. Nodes shall ensure that the transmissions do not collide with the traffic scheduled by any other node in two-hop neighborhood. CGU NDSL WMAN - 129

Mesh Networks Using centralized scheduling, scheduling the Mesh BS shall gath er resource requests from all the Mesh SSs within a c ertain hop range. determine the amount of granted resources for each li nk the grant messages do not contain the actual schedule, but each node shall compute it by using the predetermined algor ithm with given parameters. QoS is provisioned over links on a message-by- mess age basis. CGU NDSL WMAN - 130

Mesh Networks 48-bit universal MAC address When authorized to the network the node receives a 16-bit node identifier (Node ID) upon a request to the Mesh BS Node ID is transferred in the Mesh subheader, which follows the ge neric MAC header, in both unicast and broadcast messages. For addressing nodes in the local neighborhood, 8-bit link identif iers (Link IDs) shall be used. The Link ID is transmitted as part of the CID in the generic MAC header in unicast messages. The Link IDs shall be used in distributed scheduling to identify re source requests and grants. Since these messages are broadcast, the receiver nodes can de termine the schedule using the transmitters Node ID in the Mes

h subheader, and the Link ID in the payload of the MSH-DSCH ( Mesh Mode Schedule with Distributed Scheduling) message.
