The patent application (Publication Number: US20230370971A1) discloses a station (STA) for wireless communication, comprising at least one transceiver and one or more processors. The STA is designed to receive a first uplink (UL) transmission request (ULTR) that triggers UL transmission within a specified period or allocates resources for the transmission. The ULTR also includes information about potential subsequent UL transmissions. After receiving the ULTR, the STA receives a downlink (DL) transmission containing a packet intended for multiple STAs. The packet includes a field that helps the processors determine the total number of space-time streams (STSs) or select values indicating the number of STSs for each STA. Importantly, the timing of ULTR reception is linked to broadcast signals or negotiations by the STA, ensuring efficient communication. Additionally, the values associated with different user positions are carefully managed to prevent exceeding the total number of STSs in the packet, optimizing data processing and transmission for the STA.

This innovative approach to wireless communication addresses the challenges of managing UL and DL transmissions efficiently in a multi-user environment. By incorporating specific criteria for ULTR reception timing and STS allocation based on user positions, the STA can enhance communication reliability and performance. The patent application's focus on optimizing resource allocation and data processing for multiple STAs demonstrates a commitment to improving wireless communication systems' overall effectiveness. This technology has the potential to advance the field of wireless communication by providing a structured and efficient framework for managing transmissions in complex network environments.
