The present invention concerns communication of messages between software layers. The present document focusses on the HiperLAN/2 technology, but the described principles applies to any kind of protocol stack, and more generally to any kind of software where communication beween different modules is required. A model sender-receiver has been defined, with exchange of messages from the sender to the receiver. A receiver in the upper layer registers itself to a sender located in the HL2 layer to receive the message type it is interested in. When this sender posts a message, it will be sent to all the receivers that have asked for this kind of message.
