This MIB module provides network management 
information on IEEE 802.11 wireless device 
association management and data packet forwarding 
configuration and statistics.  This MIB is an
extension to the IEEE802dot11-MIB and provides
per client based information.  

The IEEE802dot11-MIB is defined in the IEEE Std 
802.11-Jan 14 1999, Wireless LAN Medium Access 
Control and Physical Layer Specifications, by the
LAN MAN Standards Committee of the IEEE Computer

          GLOSSARY and ACRONYMS 

Access point (AP)   
    Transmitter/receiver (transceiver) device
    that commonly connects and transports data 
    between a wireless network and a wired network.

    Advanced Encryption Standard

    The service used to establish access point
    or station mapping and enable STA invocation
    of the distribution system serivces.
    (Wireless clients attempt to connect to 
    access points.)

    Device that connects two or more segments 
    and reduces traffic by analyzing the 
    destination address, filtering the frame,
    and forwarding the frame to all connected 

Bridge AP 
    It is an AP that functions as a transparent 
    bridge between 2 wired LAN segments.  

Bridge Host     
    This is also known as Work Group Bridge.  This
    is a non-root bridge that is connected to a
    remote LAN segment and will only communicate 
    with repeaters or root bridges.  It does not 
    accept association from other wireless devices.

    IEEE 802.11 Basic Service Set (Radio Cell).  The
    BSS of an AP comprises of the stations directly 
    associated with the AP.

    Cisco Compatible eXtensions

    A set of specifications which when implemented
    would make a client radio interoperable with a
    Cisco WLAN infrastructure and make best use of the
    innovations for enhanced security, mobility,
    quality of service and network management.

    Code Mode/CBC Mac Protocol

Client (Client Station)    
    A wireless device in a wireless network 
    associated with an access point.

Direct Sequence Spread Sprectrum ( DSSS )

    DSSS is a method to send data where the 
    transmitting and receiving systems operate at
    frequencies as wide as 22MHz.  The wide channels
    help the participating systems to send more
    information at higher data rates than the FSSS

    Extensible Authentication Protocol

    Extensible Authentication Protocol-Transport
    Layer Security

Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum ( FSSS )

    FSSS systems hop from one frequency to another in
    the allowed band of frequencies during the data
    transmission.  83 MHz is specified as the allowed
    band of frequencies in the 2.4 GHz spectrum.

IEEE 802.11    
    Standard to encourage interoperability among 
    wireless networking equipment.

IEEE 802.11b

    The IEEE 802.11b standard describes DSSS systems
    that operate in the 2.4 GHz ISM band at data
    rates of 1, 2, 5,5 and 11 Mbps.

IEEE 802.11a

    The IEEE 802.11a standard describes wireless LAN
    operation in the 5 GHz UNII band at data rates
    of 6, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48 and 54 Mbps.

IEEE 802.11g

    This standard specifies operation in 2.4 GHz ISM
    band at data rates of 6, 9, 12, 18. 24, 36, 48 and
    54 Mbps.

Industrial, Scientific and Medical band (ISM)

    A license-free band specified by the Federal
    Communications Commission for use by the wireless
    LAN systems.  The ISM bands are located starting
    at 902 MHz, 2.4GHz and 5.8 GHz.

    Message Integrity Check.  A MIC can, optionally, 
    be added to WEP-encrypted 802.11 frames.

Non-Root Bridge   
    This wireless bridge does not connect to the main
    wired LAN segment.  It connects to a remote wired 
    LAN segment and can associate to root bridges and
    other non-root bridges that accept client 
    associations.  It also can accept associations 
    from other non-root bridges, repeater access 
    points, and client devices.

    Peripheral Component Interconnect

    A local bus standard developed by Intel
    Corporation. Most modern PCs include a PCI bus.
    PCI is a 64-bit bus, though it is usually
    implemented as a 32-bit bus. It can run at clock
    speeds of 33 or 66 MHz. At 32 bits and 33 MHz, it
    yields a throughput rate of 133 MBps.

    Device that connects multiple segments, listening 
    to each and repeating signal on one to every other 
    connected one; regenerates each transmission 
    so that it can travel farther.

Repeater or Non-root Access Point    
    The repeater access point is not connected 
    to the wired LAN.  The Repeater is a wireless 
    LAN transceiver that transfers data between 
    a client and another access point, another 
    repeater, or between two bridges.  The repeater 
    is placed within radio range of an access point 
    connected to the wired LAN, another repeater, or 
    an non-root bridge to extend the range of the 

Root Access Point    
    This access point connects clients to the main 
    wired LAN.

Root Wireless Bridge    
    This wireless bridge is connected to the main 
    wired LAN.  This wireless bridge can communicate
    with non-root wireless bridges, repeater access
    points, and client devices but not with another 
    wireless root bridge.  Only one wireless bridge
    in a wireless LAN can be set as the wireless 
    root bridge.  

    Radio Service Set ID.  It is used for identification
    during association.

    A non-AP 802.11 wireless station.

    WPA Temporal Key encryption.

Unlicensed National Information Infrastucture (UNII)

    The UNII bands are in the 5 GHz range and are 100
    MHz wide.  These bands are used by 802.11a-compliant

    Wired Equivalent Privacy.  'WEP' is generally used
    to refer to 802.11 encryption.
