Accomplishment: Design, Development and Submission of 802.11 standard FST feature
Swortex designed, developed and mainlined the Fast Session Transfer (FST) feature – part of 802.11 spec (then – of 802.11ad) allowing multi-band devices to select one of the bands and switch to it seamlessly.
During this task we had to choose the most appropriate way of implementing FST and then actually implement it, test and submit the code to the related Open Source communities (kernel, hostap etc.).
It was a T&M project and we were responsible for the full SW Development cycle from SW architecture and design to Development, functional testing as well as writing the Feature Test Plan.
The implementation was done on behalf of Qualcomm, in close cooperation with both relevant Qualcomm representatives and Open Source communities, in accordance with strict guidelines set by both customer’s legal department and community maintainers.
