4.1. MAC Software ApplicationsΒΆ

The Mango 802.11 Design includes 6 MAC applications, 4 for CPU High and 2 for CPU Low.

The applications for CPU High implement the Linux NIC interface (linux_dev), and standalone Access Point (AP), client (STA), and ad-hoc nodes (IBSS). The standalone applications are only used when the node is not running Linux.

The applications for CPU Low implement the standard 802.11 DCF and a simple Tx/Rx passthrough called NoMAC.
