Basic Service Set(BSS)



The Basic Service Set is a term used to describe the collection of Stations which may communicate together within an 802.11 WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network).

The BSS may or may not include AP (Access Point) which provide a connection onto a fixed distribution system such as an Ethernet network. Two types of BSS exist; IBSS (Independent Basic Service Set) and Infrastructure Basic Service Set.
