1. A device, the device comprising processing circuitry coupled to storage, the processing circuitry configured to:determine a first transmission opportunity (TXOP) for a first time period, wherein the first time period is allocated to the device for transmission of one or more frames to a first device on a channel;
determine an extended TXOP for a second time period, wherein the extended TXOP is allocated to the device after a time gap from the first TXOP, wherein the time gap introduces a pause between the first TXOP and the extended TXOP;
perform an enhanced distributed channel access (EDCA) operation before accessing the channel; and
cause to send a first frame of the one or more frames on the channel during the first TXOP.
