transmission opportunity (TXOP)

In WLANs according to 802.11, the transmission

opportunity (TXOP) corresponds to the transmission right. The TXOP is used to describe the transmission interval, the start time and the transmission duration. In this time slot, the access

point(AP) can transmit more than one frame, which increases the data throughput

in the access point. If the stations have secured the TXOP transmission right during a competitive phase, Enhanced Distributed Channel Access (EDCA), this is referred to as EDCA-TXOP. If the TXOP was allocated via the Hybrid Coordination Function (HCF), then it is an HCCA-TXOP (HCF Controlled Channel Access).
