stds-802-16-mac: A comment to the section 8.4.2 of the TG3 MAC Document.
The following is a comment to the section 8.4.2 of the TG3 MAC Document.
This comment does not suggest a specific change in the text of the section
but rather encourages
to develop certain general functionality that will help in the case of
DL-MAP, UL-MAP and as well in other cases
when the BS is not certain whether a DL broadcast / multicast reached some
Actually BS never knows whether an SS has received the DL-MAP or UL-MAP.
Seems that more correct is to provide a definition of Broadcast coverage
zones. Such a zone for each PHY profile would contain SSs that are able to
receive broadcasts from BS. Then BS may decide to duplicate DL-MAP and
UL-MAP info sending P-MAP messages on beam-by-beam basis
