Standardisation bodies in Europe and North America are currently developing standards for high data rate packet radio LANs. Radio LANs will have two main applications: wired LAN replacement and ad-hoc networking. In contrast to wired LAN replacement, ad-hoc networks will operate without control from a central node. As a consequence, no central synchronisation is provided and nodes must have the capability of acquiring all synchronisation from a received packet. This synchronisation can be achieved by matched filtering synchronisation codes inserted into each data packet. This paper discusses these synchronisation requirements and outlines synchronisation sequence selection criteria
