DLS - Direct Link Setup

This term describes a protocol used in WiFi networks to optimize the transfer of information between two QSTA (Quality Station) as originally defined in the IEEE 802.11e standard. The need for the protocol was motivated by the fact that the recipient may be in power save mode and as such can only be woken by the AP (Access Point).
