Claim of US Patent No. 10,993,243

1. A method for communicating in a wireless local area network (WLAN) comprising:setting, at the AP, an uplink target received signal strength information (RSSI) for each of the plurality of STAs, wherein the uplink target RSSI for each STA is set to be within a predetermined range relative to the uplink target RSSIs for the other STAs;
transmitting, from the AP to each of the plurality of STAs, a respective trigger frame containing an assigned modulation and coding scheme (MCS) and the uplink target RSSI for the assigned MCS; and
receiving, at the AP, a respective uplink frame transmitted to the AP by each respective STA at a respective one of the determined uplink target RSSIs included in the respective trigger frame.
