An alphabetical glossary of terms related to Laird's embedded wireless modules.
Because the access point can only send a buffered downlink frame in response to the PS-poll from the station, the station can remain in sleep mode after finishing the PS-poll frame. See Power Save Polling for more information.
Import/Export an SCU Main window parameter that displays only if the radio is programmed to allow import/export functions and if you are logged in as an administrator.
Tap Import/Export to do one of the following:
Note: When importing information, select Add to existing to merge new information with current registry information. Select Replace to overwrite the current registry information with the newly-imported information.
Industry Canada (IC) is the regulatory agency and standards body for Canada. For more information: http://www.ic.gc.ca/
IC certifications are based on FCC certification testing using the same antennas and transmit power and covering the same frequency bands. Test reports and data sheets relevant to IC certification may be found in the FCC section for the applicable Laird device.
Laird's IC certifications are certified to the IC RSS-210 standard.
Infrastructure mode involves a wireless LAN-enabled station (radio) communicating with an access point rather than directly with another wireless LAN-enabled station.
Specifies a byte gap timeout, used in conjunction with RF Packet Size to determine when a packet coming over the interface is complete.
In Bluetooth, prior to connection, a device that is attempting to be discovered will enter the inquiry procedure. It sends inquiry state packets, and then listens for an inquiry response. If the destination device is in inquiry scanning mode, it may respond with the inquiry response. If this happens, both devices enter page mode, the next step in pursuing a connection. Devices must enter inquiry scan mode at least every 1.25 seconds.
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a 32-bit, unique string of numbers used to identify a device on the Internet. An IP address can be static (it never changes) or dynamic (the address is assigned randomly to a device for as long as the device is connected to the Internet).
A hypothetical antenna which can radiate and receive 100% signal in all directions. It is used in laboratories as the primary reference for measuring the radiating power of other antennas.
