Claim of US Patent No. 10,694,526

1. A method for avoiding interference for a communication link, comprising:synchronizing a common time base between a transmitting node and a receiving node, wherein the transmitting node and the receiving node receive and transmit using directional antennas;
based on the synchronizing of the common time base, sending a link schedule to a client of the transmitting node, wherein the link schedule is for scheduling concurrent directional channel access;
responsive to the sending of the link schedule to the client, receiving an acknowledgment message from the client, wherein the acknowledgment message comprises pursuit statistics of the client, wherein the pursuit statistics comprise a reward metric or selection count; and
coordinating directional transmissions between the transmitting node and the receiving node based on the acknowledgement message.
