Abstract

A virtual WLAN concept is described that allows to increase the throughput of 802.11 Wireless LANs (WLANs). The concept can be implemented in software above the current 802.11 MAC layer and therefore does not require the development of a new 802.11 PHY or MAC layers. It is also operable with the current standard.
