Claim of US Patent No. 11,116,035


1. A wireless communication terminal that wirelessly communicates with a base wireless communication terminal, the wireless communication terminal comprising:a transceiver; and
a processor,
wherein the processor is configured to:
transmit, to the base wireless communication terminal, a trigger-based physical layer protocol data unit (PPDU) using the transceiver,
switch a parameter set, which is a set of parameters used for the channel access, from a first parameter set to a second parameter set based on whether the base wireless communication terminal triggers a multi-user uplink transmission participation of the wireless communication terminal,
when a MAC protocol data unit (MPDU) included in the trigger-based PPDU does not request an immediate response, set a second parameter set timer for an access category of the MPDU when the transmission of the trigger-based PPDU ends,
when the MPDU included in the trigger-based PPDU requests the immediate response, set the second parameter set timer for the access category of the MPDU for which immediate response is received,
when the second parameter set timer expires, terminate an application of the second parameter set, and
access a channel according to a priority of data to be transmitted to the base communication terminal by the wireless communication terminal and the parameter set.
