Claim of US Patent No. 10,798,707

1. A neighbor awareness networking (NAN) device comprising storage coupled to processing circuitry, the processing circuitry configured to:determine a first NAN data link (NDL) associated with a first frequency band, a first processing core of the NAN device, and a first NAN management interface (NMI);
determine a second NDL associated with a second frequency band, a second processing core of the NAN device, and a second NMI, wherein the first frequency band is different than the second frequency band, and wherein the first processing core of the NAN device is different than the second processing core of the NAN device;
generate a NAN frame comprising one or more multi-band indications of at least one of the first NMI or the second NMI, wherein the one or more multi-band indications are indicative of at least one of the first frequency band or the second frequency band;
cause to send the NAN frame; and
establish a NAN data path (NDP) with a second NAN device using at least one of the first NDL or the second NDL.
