DOT11_OFDM_PHY_ATTRIBUTES (Compact 2013)

3/26/2014

This structure defines the attributes that are specific to an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) PHY type.


typedef struct DOT11_OFDM_PHY_ATTRIBUTES {
  ULONG  uFrequencyBandsSupported;
} DOT11_OFDM_PHY_ATTRIBUTES, *PDOT11_OFDM_PHY_ATTRIBUTES;

uFrequencyBandsSupported

The frequency bands in which the PHY can operate. Frequency bands are defined for:

  • Unlicensed national information infrastructure (U-NII) bands.
  • Conference of European Post and Telecommunication (CEPT) bands.
  • Japan 5 GHz bands.

The frequency bands supported by the PHY are defined through the following bitmask:

Bit

Description

0

Can operate in the lower (5.15-5.25 GHz) U-NII band

1

Can operate in the middle (5.25-5.35 GHz) U-NII band

2

Can operate in the upper (5.725-5.825 GHz) U-NII band

3

Can operate in CEPT B (5.47-5.7253 GHz) band

4

Can operate in the lower Japan (5.15-5.25 GHz) band

5

Can operate in the Japan 5.0 (5.03-5.091 GHz) band

6

Can operate in the Japan 4.9 (4.9-5.0 GHz) band

The miniport driver defines the attributes of a PHY on the 802.11 station through the DOT11_PHY_ATTRIBUTES structure, and formats the ERPAttributes member as a DOT11_ERP_PHY_ATTRIBUTES structure. The miniport driver must only do this if the PHY defined by the DOT11_PHY_ATTRIBUTES structure is an ERP PHY type.
