Claim of US Patent No. 10,117,201

1. A method for multi-band operation by a first transmit/receive unit (TRU), the method comprising:monitoring a plurality of frequency bands, wherein the plurality of frequency bands include at least a first band and a second band;
receiving on the first band, by the first TRU from a second TRU, a first beacon;
determining, based on the received first beacon, a first beacon period start time, wherein the first beacon period start time corresponds to beacons transmitted by the second TRU;
determining, based on the received first beacon, a second beacon period start time, wherein the second beacon period start time corresponds to a beacon for transmission by the first TRU; and
transmitting in a second band, by the first TRU, a beacon signal, wherein the beacon signal is timing aligned with beacon signals of the second TRU;
wherein the first band and the second band are adjacent radio bands.
