Claim of US Patent No. 9,350,500

1. A method for transmitting data using a plurality of transmission paths capable of transmitting the data, the method comprising:
obtaining sequence information of the plurality of transmission paths including a first transmission path in a Line Of Sight
(LOS) and a second transmission path using a relay apparatus, the second transmission path being different from the first
transmission path, wherein the sequence information include cyclic order information of at least one transmission path in
the plurality of transmission paths;

selecting, based on the obtained sequence information, the plurality of transmission paths one after another in a circular
manner;

framing the data; and
transmitting the framed data via the selected transmission paths corresponding to the obtained sequence information, using
a first directional antenna for the LOS when the first transmission path is selected and using a second directional antenna
for the relay apparatus when the second transmission path is selected,

wherein the selecting the plurality of transmission paths includes changing a selected transmission path iteratively between
the first transmission path and the second transmission path.
