The wireless LAN standards of HiperLAN2 and HiSWANa provide wireless access with high data rates in the 5 GHz band. The specifications of these standards include connection control procedures but do not define them in detail. In this paper, practical procedures and additional functions of connection control are described, such as efficient DUC bandwidth control for unicast and multicast, non-authenticated multicast, and authentication with the AAA server. These procedures and functions exceed the scope of HiperLAN2 and HiSWANa standards. Ways of implementing these connection control procedures efficiently are also provided.
