Claim of US Patent No. 10,602,501

1. A device for determining a resource unit allocation, the device comprising storage and processing circuitry configured to:determine the resource unit allocation for a first user device of one or more user devices, wherein the resource unit allocation comprises an indication of a bandwidth for the first user device, and the first user device is an individual first user device, wherein the resource unit allocation is a first resource unit allocation, wherein the bandwidth is a first bandwidth;
determine a second resource unit allocation for a second user device, and wherein the second resource unit allocation comprises an indication of a second bandwidth for the second user device, and the second user device is an individual second user device;
determine a user field of a signal field of a high efficiency wireless (HEW) frame, wherein the user field comprises an indication of a station device (STA) identifier of the first user device, an indication of a modulation and coding scheme (MCS) for the first user device, and an indication of a stream allocated to the first user device;
encode the resource unit allocation into a common field of the signal field;
encode the user field into the signal field, wherein the user field is separate from the common field; and
cause to send the HEW frame.
