Claim of US Patent No. 10,743,289

1. A wireless communication terminal for accessing a plurality of contention-based channels, the terminal comprising:a transceiver configured to transmit and receive a radio signal; and
a processor configured to process radio signals transmitted or received through the transceiver,
wherein the processor is configured to:
determine a common backoff counter value to be used by the terminal for accessing multiple channels,
set a first backoff counter for performing a backoff procedure of a first channel based on the common backoff counter value,
set a second backoff counter for performing a backoff procedure of a second channel based on the common backoff counter value, wherein the first backoff counter and the second backoff counter are initially set to be an equal value based on the common backoff counter value,
perform backoff procedures of the first channel and the second channel by using the first backoff counter and the second backoff counter, and
perform multi-channel transmission by using both of the first channel and the second channel when both of the first backoff counter and the second backoff counter have expired.
