Claim of US Patent No. 10,772,098

1. An apparatus comprising:memory circuitry; and
a processor comprising logic and circuitry configured to cause a wireless communication station (STA) to:
set an Enhanced Directional Multi Gigabit (DMG) (EDMG) supported field to a predefined value to indicate that the STA is an EDMG STA, which is a DMG STA and which supports EDMG communications, wherein the EMIG supported field comprises a single-bit field and the predefined value is “1”;
transmit a DMG frame comprising a DMG parameters field, the DMG parameters field comprising the EDMG supported field set to the predefined value to indicate that the STA is the EDMG STA; and
communicate an EDMG Physical Layer Protocol Data Unit (PPDU) over a channel in a frequency band above 45 Gigahertz (GHz).
